U-M Industrial and Operations Engineering (IOE) PhD candidate Gian-Gabriel Garcia has been awarded the INFORMS Health Applications Society (HAS) Bonder Scholarship for 2018.

The purpose of the scholarship is to promote the development and application of process modeling and operations research analyses to health care design, delivery and operations by identifying young and promising researchers during their doctoral studies.

Please join the department in congratulating him on this award!

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
