Self-healing of an electrical circuit is demonstrated by Nancy R. Sottos, Scott R. White, and co-workers on page 398 with nearly full recovery of conductance less than one millisecond after damage. Cracks break a conductive pathway in a multilayer device, interrupting electron transport and simultaneously rupturing adjacent microcapsules containing gallium–indium liquid metal. The released liquid metal restores the conductive pathway.
