When asked to imagine a “typical” engineer, many people may find themselves conjuring images of sleep-deprived, math-obsessed or highly-analytical individuals.

In reality, there is no one-size-fits-all stereotype for engineering professionals – engineers come in all shapes and sizes and from all walks of life.

Double slit experiment. I1 and I2 are intensity profiles when only slit 1 or slit 2 is open, respectively. I12 is the intensity profile when both slits are open. I1+2 is the sum of I1 and I2, it is the intensity profile when there is no interference between two beams. Note that at the center of the screen when x = 0, I1(0) = I2(0) = Io, I12(0) = 4Io, but I1+2(0) = 2Io.

When a material known as graphene was first produced inside of a lab in 2004, the science and technology community buzzed with predictions that it would become the “next big thing” for the semiconductor industry. Graphene is essentially a one-atom-thick sheet of carbon which conducts heat and electricity with incredible efficiency, making it a homerun material for the semiconductor and electronic device manufacturing industries.
