The poster was entitled “Personalized decision support tool to prevent hospital readmission for patients treated with radical cystectomy” and the work was done in collaboration with a multidisciplinary team (including IOE students Sarah Finly and Xiang Liu). The purpose of the tool is “to create a user-friendly, personalized decision support tool that can display the likelihood of readmission after radical cystectomy, as well as recommendations for optimal follow-up based on published data.”

Please join the department in congratulating her – it is very rare for a sophomore to be invited to present work at the AUA, and even less common to win the best poster award!

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
