A healable polymer for stretchable electronics
For the first time, researchers have created a stretchy polymer that’s got the right electronic properties to play an active role in transistors. What’s more, the polymer can heal when damaged. Made by joining together somewhat stiff semiconducting polymer segments with squishy segments, the material could be used in wearable health monitors and displays that can stretch, wrinkle, and heal like skin.
The new polymer has an . . .
