Electronic neural interfaces have been developed to restore function to the nervous system for patients with neural disorders. A conformal and chronically stable dielectric encapsulation is required to protect the neural interface device from the harsh physiological environment and localize the active electrode tips. Chemical vapor deposited Parylene-C(More)
—A primary goal of the Integrated Neural Interface Project (INIP) is to develop a wireless, implantable device capable of recording neural activity from 100 micromachined electrodes. The heart of this recording system is a low-power integrated circuit that amplifies 100 weak neural signals, detects spikes with programmable threshold-crossing circuits, and(More)
This work characterizes defects and phases within Cu2ZnSn(S,Se)4 (CZTS(Se)), an earth-abundant material used to make thin film photovoltaic solar cells. Overall research efforts focus on improving the solar cell device efficiency with the hope that it can be produced at the terawatt energy scale and circumvent material supply bottlenecks of current thin(More)
