MPC

noun; compounding; other word formation type initialism
A convenient way of referring to metal polymer conductor. Specifically, it refers to electric circuits produced by the metal Ga mixed with polymer. After ultrasound mixing, printing and baking, the resulting product would be covered by PDMS and made to conduct electricity by peeling the gel off.
 
Recently, in the field of biomedical engineering, a subfield for making flexible electric circuits with liquid metal emerged. Liquid metals such as Gallium could make the circuits bendable and adhesive to human skin. However, there was no consensus yet over what to call these innovations. An alternative name is simply liquid metal.
Etymology : Taking the initial letter of the compound “Metal Polymer Conductor”, and pronouncing them as “M-P-C”
