Researchers create self-reconstructive metal wire utilizing electric field trapping of gold nanoparticles

27.02.2015

Professor Eiji Iwase and graduate student Tomoya Koshi of Waseda University, Japan, have created a metal wire that can reconstruct itself utilizing electric field trapping of gold nanoparticles.

Professor Eiji Iwase (Faculty of Science and Engineering) and 1st year graduate student Tomoya Koshi (Graduate School of Fundamental Science and Engineering) have created a metal wire that can reconstruct itself utilizing electric field trapping of gold nanoparticles.


Device Demonstration: A device with a LED chip placed on top is attached to a polyamide board. 3 volts of electricity are applied to the board and initiate self-reconstruction.

The reconstructive ability achieved in this research is expected to impact the hard-wiring of flexible devices and temperature-prone substrate electronics.

The content of this research was presented at the 28th International Conference on Micro Electro Mechanical Systems (January 18-22, 2015). The research presentation was selected as an “Outstanding Oral Paper Award Finalist” and garnered much interest.

Presentation Title: Tomoya Koshi, Eiji Iwase, “Self-healing Metal Wire using an Electric Field Trapping of Gold Nanoparticles for Flexible Devices,” Proceedings of the 28th IEEE International Conference on Micro Electro Mechanical Systems (MEMS2015), pp. 81-84, Estoril, Portugal, January 18-22, 2015.

Researchers from the University of Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Aarhus in Denmark, have synthesized a new superconducting material by growing a few layers of an antiferromagnetic transition-metal chalcogenide on a bismuth-based topological insulator, both being non-superconducting materials.

While superconductivity and magnetism are generally believed to be mutually exclusive, surprisingly, in this new material, superconducting correlations...

Im Focus: Designing Architecture with Solar Building Envelopes

Among the general public, solar thermal energy is currently associated with dark blue, rectangular collectors on building roofs. Technologies are needed for aesthetically high quality architecture which offer the architect more room for manoeuvre when it comes to low- and plus-energy buildings. With the “ArKol” project, researchers at Fraunhofer ISE together with partners are currently developing two façade collectors for solar thermal energy generation, which permit a high degree of design flexibility: a strip collector for opaque façade sections and a solar thermal blind for transparent sections. The current state of the two developments will be presented at the BAU 2017 trade fair.

As part of the “ArKol – development of architecturally highly integrated façade collectors with heat pipes” project, Fraunhofer ISE together with its partners...
