Advancements in electrode design and laser techniques for fabricating micro-electrode arrays as part of a retinal prosthesis

Abstract

Retinal micro-electrode arrays (MEAs) for a visual prosthesis were fabricated by laser structuring of platinum (Pt) foil and liquid silicone rubber. A new design was created using a folding technique to create a multi-layered array from a single Pt sheet. This method allowed a reduction in both the electrode pitch, and the overall width of the array, while… (More)
