The College of Engineering has selected Research Process Manager Stephanie Ford to receive the prestigious Staff Excellence Award.

The Staff Excellence program was created to recognize the vital contributions that staff make to the College’s success. Recipients demonstrate sustained excellence in service and have made significant contributions to promote the College’s overall mission. Awardees are nominated by their department or unit and are selected on a competitive basis.

Stephanie has served the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering since 2012, and she has been with the University of Michigan since 2001. She is being recognized for her exemplary leadership of CEE financial teams and for her unselfish mentoring of other staff members.

Stephanie will be recognized at the College of Engineering Staff Excellence Awards Program on Thursday, May 16 at 3:00 p.m. in the Chrysler Center Chesebrough Auditorium.

Our heartiest congratulations to Stephanie on this well-deserved honor!

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
