  • Stimulating neuron cells with light is an exciting new technology that is revolutionizing the neurosciences. To date, due to the optical complexity that is involved, photostimulation has only been achieved at a single site using high power light sources. Here we present a GaN based micro-light emitting diode (LED) array that can open the way to multi-site photostimulation of neuron cells. The device is a two-dimensional array of micrometre size LED emitters. Each emitter has the required… CONTINUE READING
