This publication describes the layout, fabrication and assessment of a polymer-based neural interface for a cochlear electrode array, reviewed by way of fabrication approach, performance, and reliability. Polymer-based units have attracted cognizance within the neural prosthetic box as a result of their flexibility and compatibility with micro-fabrication method. A liquid crystal polymer (LCP) is an inert, hugely waterproof polymer compatible for the encapsulation of digital elements and as a substrate fabric for fabricating neural interfaces. the writer has designed, fabricated, and evaluated an LCP-based cochlear electrode array for a far better polymer-based cochlear implant. The thesis offers with three key issues: atraumatic deep insertion, tripolar stimulation, and long term reliability. Atraumatic insertion of the intracochlear electrode and ensuing renovation of residual listening to became crucial in state–of-the-art cochlear implantation. a singular tapered layout of an LCP-based cochlear electrode array is gifted to satisfy such pursuits. For high-density and pitch-recognizable cochlear implant, channel interplay may be refrained from. neighborhood tripolar stimulation utilizing multi-layered electrode websites are proven to accomplish hugely targeted electric stimulation. This thesis addresses one other very important factor within the polymer-based neural implants: the long term reliability factor. After suggesting a brand new approach to forming mechanical interlocking to enhance polymer-metal adhesion, the writer plays accelerating getting older assessments to ensure the method’s efficacy. The aforementioned 3 subject matters were completely tested via a number of in vitro and in vivo experiences. Verification foresees the improvement of LCP-based cochlear electrode array for an atraumatic deep insertion, complex stimulation, and long term scientific implant.
