This book provides readers with basic principles of the electrochemistry of the electrodes used in modern, implantable neural prostheses. The authors discuss the boundaries and conditions in which the electrodes continue to function properly for long time spans, which are required when designing neural stimulator devices for long-term in vivo applications. Two kinds of electrode materials, titanium nitride and iridium are discussed extensively, both qualitatively and quantitatively. The influence of the counter electrode on the safety margins and electrode lifetime in a two electrode system is explained. Electrode modeling is handled in a final chapter.
Naser Pour Aryan received the B.E. degree in electrical engineering from Ferdowsi University of Mashhad, Iran, in 2005 and the M.Sc. degree in communication technology from the University of Ulm, Germany, in 2008. He received his Ph.D. degree from the University of Ulm in December 2013. He has been working as a researcher on the retina...
