Science is Looking at Ways to Self-Heal Cellphones

Almost all cellphone users experience a cracked screen at some point. This bothersome issue can be disappointing and is expensive to fix.

Twinkal Patel is a PhD Candidate in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, Concordia University. He studied how to use self-healing polymer networks for improving the battery life of triboelectric nanogenerators. This technology could be used to extend the lifespan of cellphone batteries.
