Craig Russell (BSE IOE ’88) has recommended an additional gift from Goldman Sachs Gives to the College of Engineering, which will supplement the P. Craig Russell Goldman Sachs Endowed Scholarship Fund, which provides need-based scholarship support for full-time undergraduate students from the State of Michigan.  This gift qualifies for the Bicentennial Opportunity Matching Initiative. 

Mr. Russell is global co-head of the Goldman Sachs Asset Management’s (GSAM) client business and serves on the GSAM Operating Group, a position he has held since 2011.  His philanthropic interests include serving on the Board of Directors of Wellness in the Schools (WITS), the Crime Victims Treatment Center, both New York City based charities, and the Industrial and Operations Engineering department’s Advisory Board.  In 2016, he was master of ceremonies for the College’s annual Scholarship and Fellowship Luncheon.  He lives in New York City with his wife, Dr. Pamela Jones, a clinical psychologist specializing in addiction treatment, and they have three children.

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
