Conductive composite a cut above

A composite material (also called a composition material or shortened to composite, which is the common name) is a material made from two or more constituent materials with significantly different physical or chemical properties that, when combined, produce a material with characteristics different from the individual components. The individual components remain separate and distinct within the finished structure, differentiating composites from mixtures and solid solutions.

The new material may be preferred for many reasons: common examples include materials which are stronger, lighter, or less expensive when compared to traditional materials.

A research team from Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) in Pennsylvania have created an electrically conductive material which remains operational even after sustaining physical damage. Published in the journal Nature Materials, the CMU team outlines the potential for this stretchy material to be one day integrated within wearable textile technologies.
