Eunshin Byon, U-M Industrial and Operations Engineering (IOE) associate professor, has been elected 2019 Chair-Elect of the INFORMS Quality, Statistics, and Reliability section (QSR).

The QSR section is an interdisciplinary section of INFORMS and is comprised of members from industrial engineering, statistics and business communities from over 50 countries.

“QSR is at the forefront of the areas of data science, statistical analysis, and quality and reliability engineering,” said Byon. “With data science being so popular, the role of the QSR becomes more important in addressing great challenges in many data-driven theories and applications.”

Byon joined IOE in 2011. Her research focuses on uncertainty quantification of stochastic systems using stochastic simulations, reliability analysis and improvement of large-scale, interconnected systems with applications to energy and environmental systems.

“While serving QSR as Chair-elect, I’ll be working with QSR officers and members to increase the visibility of QSR in our discipline and to enhance collaborations with other clusters, journals, and researchers in national and industry laboratories,” she said.

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
