Self-Healing Hydrogels for Wearable Electronics

Self-Healing Hydrogels for Wearable Electronics

One of the greatest challenges involved in the design of wearable electronics is how to power them. Many devices must be soft and elastic, yet be able to return to their initial shape. This must avoid having bulky batteries or wires that could snag or obstruct...

Plasma Improves Adhesion of 3D Printing

Plasma Improves Adhesion of 3D Printing

Scientists from the University of La Rioja in Spain showed how polyoxymethylene (POM) can be an excellent engineering material for 3D printing when an atmospheric pressure air plasma treatment is applied on a polycarbonate (PC)‐printing base.
