Due to their tissue-like mechanical properties,
hydrogels are being increasingly used for biomedical applications;
a well-known example are soft contact lenses. These gel-like
polymers consist of 90 percent water, are elastic and particularly
biocompatible. Hydrogels that are also electrically conductive
allow additional fields of application, for example in the
transmission of electrical signals in the body or as sensors. An
interdisciplinary research team of the Research Training Group
(RTG) 2154 “Materials for Brain” at Kiel University (CAU) has now
developed a method to produce hydrogels with an excellent level of
electrical conductivity. What makes this method special is that the
mechanical properties of the hydrogels are largely retained. This
way they could be particularly well suited, for example, as a
material for medical functional implants, which are used to treat
certain brain diseases. The group’s findings were published on
March 16, 2021 in the prestigious journal Nano
Letters.

    The New Fusion technology is based on a phenomenon called triplet-triplet annihilation (TTA) which is a process in which two triplet excitons annihilate and produce a higher energy singlet exciton.
