Photo-Degradable Soft Robots using Silicone Elastomeric Composite
We've developed soft robots that maintain high elasticity and can degrade under ultraviolet light, offering potential military applications for discreet operations and surveillance. These robots effectively self-dispose after temporary tasks, reducing environmental impact and enhancing exploration in hazardous areas and hardware security. Sci. Adv. 9, eadh9962 (2023) DOI:10.1126/sciadv.adh9962
Biodegradable Mg3Zn for Transient Electronics
We proposed a biodegradable single-phase Mg3Zn alloy using sputtering process and applied it to transient electronics devices with improved corrosion resistivity and uniformity. [Journal of Magnesium and Alloys 2023, https://doi.org/10.1016/j.jma.2023.06...]
Electroceuticals for Regeneration of Long Nerve Gap
