Implantable sensor decomposes when its usefulness ends

A team of researchers based at Stanford University has developed a new kind of implantable strain and pressure sensor that decomposes harmlessly when its usefulness ends. In their paper published in the journal Nature, the group describes developing and testing their sensor. Sung-Geun Choi and Seung-Kyun Kang with Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology offer a News & Views piece on the work done by the team at Stanford in the same journal issue.
