New Stretchable, Self-Healing and Illuminating Electronic Material for Wearables and Soft Robots

Imagine a smart self-healing, flexible, stretchable, energy-efficient and much brighter all-in-one screen for your smart-phone, would this be possible? In the news by The Straits Times today on ‘New material may be answer to crack-proof phone display screens’, iHealthtech Principal Investigator, Asst Prof Benjamin Tee and his research team have been featured for successfully developed a device, called HELIOS (Healable, Low-field Illuminating Optoelectronic Stretchable), that comes with such all-in-one properties. The work was earlier published online in Nature Materials, 2019. Follow the NUS news for more information about this new material.
