Perception-aware computational fabrication : increasing the apparent gamut of digital fabrication

Piovarči, Michal ; Didyk, Piotr (Dir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Università della Svizzera italiana, 2020 ; 2020INFO015.

Haptic and visual feedback are important for assessing objects' quality and affordance. One of the benefits of additive manufacturing is that it enables the creation of objects with personalized tactile and visual properties. This personalization is realized by the ability to deposit functionally graded materials at microscopic resolution. However, faithfully reproducing real-world objects on a...

Soft, implantable bioelectronic interfaces for translational research

Schiavone, Giuseppe ; Fallegger, Florian ; Kang, Xiaoyang ; Barra, Beatrice ; Vachicouras, Nicolas ; Roussinova, Evgenia ; Furfaro, Ivan ; Jiguet, Sébastien ; Seáñez, Ismael ; Borgognon, Simon ; Rowald, Andreas ; Li, Qin ; Qin, Chuan ; Bézard, Erwan ; Bloch, Jocelyne ; Courtine, Grégoire ; Capogrosso, Marco ; Lacour, Stéphanie P.

The convergence of materials science, electronics, and biology, namely bioelectronic interfaces, leads novel and precise communication with biological tissue, particularly with the nervous system. However, the translation of lab‐ based innovation toward clinical use calls for further advances in materials, manufacturing and characterization paradigms, and design rules. Herein, a ...

Birds have peramorphic skulls, too: anatomical network analyses reveal oppositional heterochronies in avian skull evolution

Plateau, Olivia ; Foth, Christian

In: Communications Biology, 2020, vol. 3, no. 1, p. 195

In contrast to the vast majority of reptiles, the skulls of adult crown birds are characterized by a high degree of integration due to bone fusion, e.g., an ontogenetic event generating a net reduction in the number of bones. To understand this process in an evolutionary context, we investigate postnatal ontogenetic changes in the skulls of crown bird and non-avian theropods using anatomical...

Variations of the Herschel–Bulkley exponent reflecting contributions of the viscous continuous phase to the shear rate-dependent stress of soft glassy materials

Caggioni, Marco ; Trappe, Veronique ; Spicer, Patrick T.

In: Journal of Rheology, 2020, vol. 64, no. 2, p. 413–422

We explore the flow behavior of concentrated emulsions for which the viscosity of the continuous phase can be significantly varied by changing the temperature. The exponents obtained by fitting the shear rate-dependent stress with the popular Herschel–Bulkley (HB) model display a systematic dependence on the viscosity of the continuous phase, revealing that viscous dissipation via the...

Notes on the cheek region of the Late Jurassic theropod dinosaur Allosaurus

Evers, Serjoscha W. ; Foth, Christian ; Rauhut, Oliver W.M.

In: PeerJ, 2020, vol. 8, p. e8493

Allosaurus, from the Late Jurassic of North America and Europe, is a model taxon for Jurassic basal tetanuran theropod dinosaurs. It has achieved an almost iconic status due to its early discovery in the late, 19th century, and due to the abundance of material from the Morrison Formation of the western U.S.A., making Allosaurus one of the best-known theropod taxa. Despite this, various...
