Bioelectronics

Technologies for Bioelectronics is a working group at Fraunhofer IZM, that design and fabricate active neural interfaces. The group integrates small custom-designed electronics into microsystems for stimulation of and recording from the neural tissue. Their microsystems are often flexible implants based on biocompatible materials tailored for the central or peripheral nervous system. Technologies for Bioelectronics working group at Fraunhofer IZM designs, fabricates, packages as well as tests their implants for long-term use. They also investigate new approaches for neural stimulation and wireless power transfer. They work on flexible electrode fabrication for neural stimulation and recording. Additionally, they develop protection of active implantable devices based on soft materials. They also use ultrasound wireless power transfer for deep implants.
