Finding your way to leadership

The nuclear industry needs leadership for continued successful operation and to steer through today’s economic, technical and political challenges. But while the issues themselves are being well studied and documented, the nature of leadership itself is often quite unclear. Jeremy Gordon asks a range of nuclear leaders what we really mean when we talk about leadership and how young professionals can discover their own leadership role.
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
