One of the most significant components for implantable bioelectronic devices is the interface between the microelectrodes and the tissue or cells for disease diagnosis or treatment. To make the devices work efficiently and safely in vivo, the electrode-tissue interface should not only be confined in micro scale, but also possesses excellent electrochemical(More)
With the rapidly developed micromachining technology, various kinds of sophisticated microelectrodes integrated with micro fluidic channels are design and fabricated for not only electrophysiological recording and stimulation, but also chemical drug delivery. As many efforts have been devoted to develop rigid microprobes for neural research of brain, few(More)
Engineering of neural interface with nanomaterials for high spatial resolution neural recording and stimulation is still hindered by materials properties and modification methods. Recently, poly(3,4-ethylene-dioxythiophene) (PEDOT) has been widely used as an electrode-tissue interface material for its good electrochemical property. However, cracks and(More)
Iridium oxide has been widely used in neural recording and stimulation due to its good stability and large charge storage capacity (CSC). In general, the iridium oxide film used in the electrophysiological application can be grouped into three principal classifications: sputtering iridium oxide film (SIROF), activated iridium oxide film (AIROF) and(More)
Implantable biomedical microdevices enable the restoration of body function and improvement of health condition. As the interface between artificial machines and natural tissue, various kinds of microelectrodes with high density and tiny size were developed to undertake precise and complex medical tasks through electrical stimulation and(More)
This paper presents a transdermal power transfer device for the application of implantable devices or systems. The device mainly consists of plug and socket. The power transfer process can be started after inserting the plug into the socket with an applied potential on the plug. In order to improve the maneuverability and reliability of device during power(More)
Owing to interacting with the living tissue directly, the electrode-tissue interface largely determines the performance of the whole bioelectronics devices. The miniaturization of biomedical electronic components requires interface materials to possess properties including excellent electrical performance, good biocompatibility and compatibility with(More)
