Superelastic conductor on electrospun mat

Polyu1A highly permeable and superelastic conductor that can be used for wearable electronic devices capable of withstanding long-time wear has been developed at Hong Kong Polytechnic University.

The conductor is fabricated by coating or printing liquid metal onto an electrospun elastomeric fibre mat, which offers high permeability, stretchability, conductivity and electrical stability, allowing it to be employed in various applications, including health monitoring devices, soft robotics and on-skin electronics.
