Self-healing electronic chip tests may aid space travel

Self-healing electronic chip tests may aid space travel | TechWatch | Scoop.it

Self-repairing electronic chips are one step closer, according to a team of US researchers.


The group has created a circuit that heals itself when cracked thanks to the release of liquid metal which restores conductivity. The process takes less than an eye blink to bring the circuit back to use.


The researchers said that their work could eventually lead to longer-lasting gadgets as well as solving one of the big problems of interplanetary travel.
