Liquid metal droplets with high elasticity, mobility and mechanical robustness

Author affiliations

Abstract

Non-stick, ultra-elastic liquid metal droplets were fabricated by coating polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) particles onto the surface of NaOH-treated liquid metal droplets. The liquid metal droplets consisted of a liquid metal core, a thin anti-oxidation layer to maintain the high surface tension of the liquid metal and a particle-interpenetrated shell to enhance the mobility of the droplet.
