Self-healing material research
Carnegie Mellon University’s Mohammad Islam and Lining Yao are developing a self-healing actuator, called Healer, which is expected to fully heal itself within a few hours with the same shape, functionalities, and properties as before if it is broken into pieces. Such actuators can be used as sensors and synthetic muscles.
