Congratulations to U-M Aerospace undergraduate, Haylea Bazinau! She is the 2020 recipient of The Isaac, Vera, Gayle, Karen and Carol Bagley Aerospace Engineering Undergraduate Fund. This scholarship awards outstanding students in the Aerospace Department that are U.S. Citizens or permanent residents. It was established when U-M alumnus, Karen Ann (Bagley) Albrecht (BSE Aero ’72), endowed The Isaac, Vera, Gayle, Karen and Carol Bagley Endowed Aerospace Engineering Undergraduate Fund.

This year’s recipient, Haylea Bazinau, is a sophomore with a major in Aerospace Engineering and a minor in Art & Design. In addition to her schoolwork, Haylea is involved in Sigma Delta Tau, sorority Phi Sigma Rho, AIAA Social Committee, SACNAS, WAA, and SWE. She plans to pursue a career that connects the world through satellites.

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
