Liquid Wire and Binghamton University (CAMM)
Collaboration in Metal Gel Circuitry Study
To demonstrate and characterize stretchable conductors developed by Liquid Wire Inc., a DC test structure, shown below, undergoes cyclic strain testing. This involves linear stretching of a Metal Gel test structure to 100% elongation for 10,000 cycles. This cyclic strain testing trial is repeated three times on the same sample to test its reliability and robustness.
Experimental Results Indicate:
1. Near fatigue free behavior for 30,000 cycles
2. Linear resistance characteristics during elongation
3. Minimal hysteresis
