University of Michigan to Create Outdoor Drone Complex for Secure Testing

The University of Michigan is one of the most advanced schools in the country when it comes to robotics and drone engineering. This fall, the university will increase its involvement in the field by adding an outdoor drone complex, or "fly lab" as sUASnews calls it, to its campus, in order to avoid the Federal Aviation Administration's restrictions on altitude when it comes to drone-testing.
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
