Chairman Will Keene and CEO Adam Cove look back at Edson’s 160-year history while discussing its future.

When Henry Keene bought Massachusetts-based Edson International in 1956, the company was almost 100 years old. His sons Will and Hank grew up learning the ropes while sailing on boats their family built. When the brothers wanted their own sailboat, the family built it together.
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
