Stretchable Conductors Maintain Conductivity Under 700% Strain

Stretchable Conductors Maintain Conductivity Under 700% Strain

Conductive materials change their properties under strain or stretching. The electrical conductivity decreases and resistance increases with stretching. The US Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) is working with liquid metal systems that can autonomously change the structure to become better conductors in response to strain. Polymerized Liquid Metal Networks, the material developed by AFRL scientists, can show […]
