Newswise: Breaking (and Restoring) Graphene’s Symmetry in a Twistable Electronics Device

Breaking (and Restoring) Graphene’s Symmetry in a Twistable Electronics Device

Columbia University School of Engineering and Applied Science

A recent Columbia Engineering study demonstrates a new way to tune the properties of 2D materials simply by adjusting the twist angle between them. The researchers built devices consisting of monolayer graphene encapsulated between two crystals of boron nitride and, by adjusting the relative twist angle between the layers, they were able to create multiple moiré pattern—“the first time anyone has seen the full rotational dependence of coexisting moiré superlattices in one device.”

Are hiring algorithms fair? They’re too opaque to tell, study finds

Cornell University

New research from a team of Computing and Information Science scholars at Cornell University raises questions about hiring algorithms and the tech companies who develop and use them: How unbiased is the automated screening process? How are the algorithms built? And by whom, toward what end, and with what data?

Newswise: Contest showcases winning green fluorescent protein images, videos

Contest showcases winning green fluorescent protein images, videos

American Society for Cell Biology (ASCB)

Earlier this year, the call went out to the worldwide scientific community to submit their most beautiful and intriguing images and videos created using green fluorescent protein (GFP), the glowing molecule that revolutionized cell imaging 25 years ago. Now the votes are in, and the American Society for Cell Biology (ASCB), its Public Information Committee, and the public have determined the winners in each category.

Newswise: Virtual and mixed reality inferior to traditional learning in anatomy education

Virtual and mixed reality inferior to traditional learning in anatomy education

McMaster University

The McMaster study compared an MR model (Microsoft HoloLens) and a VR model (HTC VIVE) derived from a physical model to the actual model. The researchers focused on overall learning performance and the effects of stereopsis by using a strategy where the non-dominant eye was covered in one test condition.

Newswise: This App Teaches Sketching Skills to Improve Graduation Rates in Science and Engineering

This App Teaches Sketching Skills to Improve Graduation Rates in Science and Engineering

University of California San Diego

Engineers have developed a touchscreen app to teach students how to sketch 2D projections and 3D views freehand. This teaches students spatial visualization--the ability to think in 3D. This skill is important in many STEM fields, from Computer-Aided-Design (CAD) in engineering to using ultrasound for medical procedures.
