Toward dissolvable electronics for implants and sensors
Tiny electronic sensors and devices that can be implanted in the body and then dissolve almost without a trace are getting closer to reality. Scientists have tested several biodegradable materials, including DNA, proteins and metals, for making transient electronics. Now one team has taken another step toward this goal. They created a dissolvable device component out of egg proteins, magnesium and tungsten.
