Biodegradable Electronic Circuits Dissolve In Water


So you thought electronic circuits should be protected against moisture ? Well , now we have a new kind of electronic technology that allows circuits to be dissolved in water and the technology would be immensely useful in temporary medical implants. The technology is paving a way for a new kind of bio degradable electronics. The circuits are high performance system that can significantly reduce electronic waste.

The circuits to be used in medical implants in body can function for a predetermined amount of time and then dissolve in the body; eliminating the need for operation to remove. The engineers have performed successful operation on a rat by implanting the sensor to monitor the bacterial infection near the surgical incisions.

This technology will play an important role in future.
