Please join U-M Industrial and Operations Engineering (IOE) in congratulating Luze Xu and Yiling Zhang, winners of the 2018 Murty Prize. Luze’s paper was titled “More Virtuous Smoothing” and Yiling’s paper was titled “Ambiguous Chance-Constrained Bin Packing under Mean-Covariance Information.”

A committee reviews papers nominated for this annual award, formally known as the Katta Murty Prize for Best Research Paper on Optimization by an IOE Student, and chooses the strongest entries.

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
