Amy Cohn receives funding from Saint Joseph Mercy Health System

Professor Amy Cohn, Associate Director of the Center for Healthcare Engineering and Patient Safety, has received funding for a project to generate call and rounding schedules for General Surgery residents at St. Joseph Mercy Health System| Short Read

Title: Scheduling Tool with St. Joes

Funding: Saint Joseph Mercy Health System

This work will be conducted in collaboration with Research Area Specialist Billy Pozehl, undergraduate CHEPS researchers Anna Learis (IOE), Kevin Li (Engineering Physics), Dale Mallette (CS), Steven MacPherson (CS), and Bassel Salka (IOE), and the St. Joseph surgical chief residents.

Researchers
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
