Mariel Lavieri named the IOE Department Richard Wilson Faculty Scholar

Professor Mariel Lavieri has been named the Richard Wilson Faculty Scholar for a two-year period beginning September 1, 2017.| Short Read

Please join U-M Industrial and Operations Engineering (IOE) in congratulating Mariel Lavieri. She is an outstanding teacher, researcher, mentor and colleague. This is a very well-deserved honor and follows several other major awards that Mariel and her students have won in the past 12 months.

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
