Junior Research Group 'ElectroActive Coatings'

In the ElectroActive Coatings group we work to employ conducting polymers such as PEDOT and PPy for the purpose of developing multifunctional electrodes for neural recording and stimulation. Thanks to these materials sophisticated features, such as controlled delivery, can be implemented with high precision and controllability into a coating thinner than a micron. The devices carrying these coated electrodes can still be ultra-thin and flexible and retain excellent properties for recording and stimulation. Electroactive coatings are powerful for extending the functionalities of existing neuroelectronic research tools without sacrificing their overall performance.
