Steinberg funds student collaboration

Todd Steinberg has endowed the Jack B. Steinberg Student Support Fund.| Short Read

Todd Steinberg has endowed the Jack B. Steinberg Student Support Fund, which will support undergraduate student activities in the College of Engineering that promote teamwork, creativity and collaboration, such as the many student teams who innovate in the Wilson Student Team Project Center. As a proud parent, Mr. Steinberg has established this fund in honor of his son, Jack B. Steinberg, a current Computer Science and Engineering student expected to graduate with the Class of 2019.

As a former Wall Street executive and with over 20 years of business development experience, Mr. Steinberg currently serves as a private investor, and resides in New York, New York.

The electrons absorb laser light and set up “momentum combs” (the hills) spanning the energy valleys within the material (the red line). When the electrons have an energy allowed by the quantum mechanical structure of the material—and also touch the edge of the valley—they emit light. This is why some teeth of the combs are bright and some are dark. By measuring the emitted light and precisely locating its source, the research mapped out the energy valleys in a 2D crystal of tungsten diselenide.

Mapping quantum structures with light to unlock their capabilities

Rather than installing new “2D” semiconductors in devices to see what they can do, this new method puts them through their paces with lasers and light detectors. | Medium Read
