New fund would provide support for College and ChemE department

Anthony C. Lembke (BSE ChE ’80) recently documented his intention to provide for a bequest to benefit the College of Engineering. When realized, the fund will provide discretionary support to both the College and the Department of Chemical Engineering.

Mr. Lembke retired in 2014 as Co-CIO and Principal of MKP Capital Management. Previously, he spent five years as a chemical engineer at Exxon, and later joined investment bank Salomon Brothers. An exceptionally committed alumnus, Mr. Lembke is an active volunteer member of the College of Engineering’s Leadership Advisory Board, serving on its Values & Culture Subcommittee. Since 2007, he has endowed three funds to support the College’s students and faculty: the Anthony Lembke Scholarship, Anthony C. Lembke Student Global Experience Fund, and Anthony C. Lembke Chair of the Department of Chemical Engineering.

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
