Author affiliations

Abstract

A novel phenomenon of electrochemically enabled reactive wetting, coating and spreading of gallium-based liquid metals within porous copper (Cu) was observed, and its mechanism was demonstrated. Its extensive applications including in the fabrication of large-area conductive film patterns, transfer-printing technology and the preparation of thermal interface materials with superhigh heat conductivity are presented.
