The self-healing fuse employs a liquid metal as the contacting material. It is held ina closed system consisting of two reservoirs to which leads are attached, connected via a heavy-walled insulating capillary. Liquid metal completely fills the system, the metal within the capillary tube serving as the fuse element. A mercury-in-glass fuse used in the first experiments is shown in Fig. 1.
