Oh WOW! Now there is no need to be afraid, the broken screen of the phone will be repaired automatically
A glass made of needle-shaped crystals was used during the experiment, which was approximately 2 mm long and 0.2 mm wide. Many of these were interconnected with the help of powerful attractive forces between their surfaces.
The breakdown of the phone is very painful for anyone. There comes a time in the life of almost all people when their phone screen is broken. The main thing is that the accessories and parts of the smartphone are expensive. At the same time, changing the screen is also not a cheap task. A team of scientists from two Indian Institutes of Technology has come up with an invention through which the worry and extra cost of replacing your screen can be a thing of the past.
Know what is this invention
A team of researchers from Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Kharagpur and Indian Institute of Science Education and Research (IIER) Kolkata has recently published a paper. It mentions the new self-healing crystalline material technology. Through this technique, the broken glass can be brought back to its original form. Researchers say that wound healing in living tissue and bone has led to the use of many synthetic self-healing polymers, gels and other soft materials over the past decade. However, mimicking such repair in crystalline materials remains a challenge because they are rigid.
Something like this concept
The study led by Professor C Malla Reddy is based on the concept that mechanical impact does not result in irreparable damage. The team developed a solid material with polar arrangement. The material is piezoelectric, which means it can convert mechanical energy into electrical energy.
Big advantage of self healing technology
Scientists have also shown this by doing it. A glass made of needle-shaped crystals was used during the experiment, which was approximately 2 mm long and 0.2 mm wide. Many of these were interconnected with the help of powerful attractive forces between their surfaces. Scientists say that this concept is not new. The big advantage of self-healing technology is its strength. It is 10 times harder than common materials. However it is not clear how soon we will be able to see the technology on smartphones in the market.
