Electrodes and Arrays

Electrodes and arrays

We develop arrays of electrodes, as well as single electrodes, for interfacing electronics with excitable tissue, both in vitro and in vivo.Applications of such technology include:

  • electrical stimulation and recording in cell cultures
  • oxygen sensing in cell cultures and in the brain (in vivo)
  • electrical stimulation and recording of cortical potentials (in vivo)
  • multichannel EEG (electroencephalography) in non-invasive systems
  • intracellular measurements
  • retina implants
  • cochlear implants
  • DBS (deep brain stimulation)
  • FES (functional electrical stimulation)
  • prosthetic devices
  • sensors

While we work with some of these applications, and are very interested in developing others, the issues with electrode interfaces and long term stability have not been completely solved, and we have a lot of work to do in those areas too!
