It can stretch almost six times. Now developers of portable electronics are engaged in the creation of prototypes of wearable devices that are made of such soft materials. They will be very good in daily use, for example, in clothes, and will also be protected from damage.
Swiss engineers have created an optical fiber, which is also conductive, as well as similar fibers with electrodes made of liquid alloys and carbon. Now, based on the invention, the first devices are created. So far, similar technologies, although not very developed, are used very rarely, but scientists continue their work.
The authors of the work were specialists from the Federal Polytechnic School of Lausanne. They created methods for composite fibers. It is able to combine at once a couple of materials, and also stretch out as much as six times. For this, the method of thermo-extraction from the preform was used.
The basis of the fiber is a copolymer, which consists of two phases - a hard and soft. By adjusting these properties, it is possible to change the properties of the final material. The optimal ratio allows you to conduct experiments with additional materials.
The authors believe that their fibers can be built into smart clothes or robots. In addition, they have already submitted a prototype of such a soft keyboard.
