Created an “electronic skin”, capable of regeneration

Создана "электронная кожа", способная к регенерацииThe skin” can simply be dissolved in a special liquid, and then use the materials again.

In an effort to make electronics more environmentally friendly, scientists have created “electronic skin” that can be fully recycled into the same material. In addition, pervasis, this “skin” can successfully recover.

The device described in the publication in the journal Science Advances, is a thin film with integrated pressure sensors, temperature, humidity and air flow. As the raw materials used three publicly available component forming the matrix with the addition of nanochastits silver.

When this “electronic skin” is cut, it is enough to add to “wound” a mixture of three of the original components that it “dragged on” restoring the chemical bond between the halves. The matrix is restored and the skin is again functioning like new.

If the damage is too strong, so recovery was possible, the “skin” can simply be dissolved in a special liquid, and then use the materials again. This is important — in the U.S. alone, per year, create more than seven million tons of electronic waste, often toxic and difficult to recycle.
