Title: Systems Engineering Models to Evaluate Technology-based Eye Care Services (TECS)

Funding Source: Department of Veterans Affairs

Project description: This work will analyze eye care delivery and access in the VA healthcare system from a systems engineering/ operations research perspective, with a primary focus on the Technology-based Eye Care Services (TECS) program. In particular, we will consider how changes in delivery and policy may impact patients’ access to services and clinical outcomes, as well as how such changes impact the VA system as a whole.

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
