Self-healing materials


Principal investigator

Human skin has the ability to heal and regenerate after fracture. Unfortunately, many man-made materials become extremely weak after failure and any cracks tend to propagate. This project will develop polymeric surfaces that self-heal after failure. The student will develop new materials that can be remoulded and recycled after use.
