Air Force scientists discover unique stretchable conductor

The Air Force Research Laboratory developed Polymerized Liquid Metal Network rupturing to transform into a highly stretchable design that autonomously increases conductivity with strain. (Courtesy Image/Second Bay Studios.)

Conductive materials change their properties as they are strained or stretched. Typically, electrical conductivity decreases and resistance increases with stretching.
