We have developed a process for producing fine, very flexible microwires suitable for use as small signal leadwires or nerve electrodes. The process incorporates metallization of high-performance monofilament polymer fibers to yield electrically conductive fibers with greatly improved flexibility over solid metal wires of similar strength. The metallization layers are produced by serial vacuum deposition of a 0.3 micron thick coating of three metals, titanium-tungsten (Ti/W), gold (Au), and… CONTINUE READING
