Speaker: Ms. Neeru Arya

Title:

Self-Healing Materials: Recent Developments

Date & Time: Thursday 2nd August, 2018 at 4.00 PM

Venue: SSCU AUDITORIUM

Abstract:

Self-healing materials are either artificially or synthetically created substances that have the built-in capability to automatically repair damage created to
themselves without any external diagnosis of the problem or human intervention. Developments of self-healing materials are primarily driven by the desire to
prolong materials lifetime while maintaining their functions. Significant synthetic efforts have been made over the last two decades where the main focus was on
the development of different self-healing systems. In my talk, I will give a brief introduction to the approaches which have advanced the research in this field
and also discuss the details of the latest development inspired by the self-healing behavior of leaves.
