'Artificial blood cells' could heal surfaces
Microscopic polymer capsules could someday heal surfaces by filling in damage in a similar way to blood cells inside the human body, according to sophisticated computer models.
The simulations show that microcapsules, travelling across a surface within the flow of a liquid, should naturally cluster around points of damage. Nanoparticles that leak out of the capsules should then fill the breach.
