SELF-HEALING ELECTRONICS

Electronic circuits are becoming more complex and denser. Damage to a single element can result in malfunctioning of the entire electronic system, this can range from a simple conducting wire to complex devices. The problem is more dominant when damages occur inside the ICs. When a tiny circuit inside an IC breaks, the whole chip or even the whole device is unusable. Engineers of the University of Illinois has successfully developed a self-healing system capable of reparing a cracked circuit [...]
