As you all know that we are in a “JET AGE”,technology has made the world a better place with it’s inventions. Know it that time has really made so many things come to pass which has made people live comfortably without stress. I want to make it known to you that Scientist at University of California Riverside have invented a phone screen material that can heal itself.
The researchers conducted several tests on the screen material, including its ability to repair itself from cuts and scratches. After they tore the material in half, it automatically stitched itself back together in under 24 hours, Chao Wang, a chemist leading the self-healing material research, tells Business Insider.
The material, which can stretch to 50 times its original size, is made of a stretchable polymer and an ionic salt. It features a special type of bond which is known as an “ion-dipole interaction”, which is a force between charged ions and polar molecules. This means that when the material breaks or has a scratch, the ions and molecules attract to each other to heal the material.
Well, this is the first time scientists have created a self-healing material that can conduct electricity, making it especially useful for use for Smartphones screens and batteries, Wang says. “We expect to see full manifestations of this new discovery available in smartphones beginning from 2020”.
Although, the team will present its research at a Tuesday meeting of the American Chemical Society, the world’s largest scientific organization devoted to the study of chemistry.
“Self-healing materials may seem far away for real application, but I believe they will come out very soon with cellphones,” he said. “Within three years, more self-healing products will go to market and change our everyday life. It will make our cellphones achieve much better performance than what they can achieve right now.
