Researchers at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) have developed the world’s first self-healing integrated chips. They demonstrated this self-healing capability in tiny power amplifiers. The amplifiers are so small that 76 of the chips – including everything they need to self-heal – could fit on a single penny. Continue reading to see how the process works.
According to Red Orbit: “The scientists created a circuit that heals itself when cracked by using a liquid metal that restored conductivity. They said their work could eventually lead to longer-lasting gadgets, as well as helping out in spacecrafts.”
