North Carolina State researchers use microfluidics to demonstrate multifunctional self-healing

North Caroline State University scientists have developed elastic, self-healing wires that reconnect both mechanically and electrically after being severed. The research team synthesized the material by drilling microfluidic channels in a commercially available self-healing polymer and then filling ...
