Fatigue-free, stretchable conductor created

21 septiembre 2015

Researchers have discovered a new stretchable, transparent conductor that can be folded or stretched and released, resulting in a large curvature or a significant strain, at least 10,000 times without showing signs of fatigue. This is a crucial step in creating a new generation of foldable electronics — think a flat-screen television that can be rolled up for easy portability — and implantable medical devices.
