Climate & Space Prof. Christiane Jablonowski has recently been appointed to the Scientific Steering Committee (SSC) of the Community Earth System Model (CESM) at the  National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR). CESM is a fully-coupled, community, global climate model that provides state-of-the-art computer simulations of the Earth’s past, present, and future climate states.

The SSC is charged with providing scientific leadership for the CESM project, including oversight of activities of working groups, coordination of model experiments, making decisions on model definition and development, writing proposals for computer time to the Climate Simulation Laboratory (CSL), encouragement of external participation in the project, and promotion of CESM within the National Science Foundation (NSF), the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), and other agencies. Prof. Jablonowski’s initial appointment runs until June 2021.

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
