The scholarship is given in honor of Irv Otis, a very well respected past President of IISE GDC and the founder of the Industrial Engineering Institute of Research and Technology.

The scholarship candidate must show that she/he is dedicated to the Industrial Engineering profession and IISE. Being involved in programs with their school and promoting the discipline of IE are excellent examples.

Please join the IOE department in congratulating Justin 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
