By this point, we’ve all heard of artificial organs.
But what about cotton candy capillaries that once cooled, leads to a circuit board?
That’s what researchers from Vanderbilt University have discovered.
“Bellan’s [an assistent professor at Vanderbilt] cotton candy-like fiber networks can be embedded in materials that mimic the extracellular matrix and then be triggered to dissolve away, potentially producing capillary systems for artificial organs. He’s using the same triggering system to produce transient electronics,” according to Heidi Hall from Vanderbilt’s news office.
