Abstract
This research will develop thin insulating coatings for implant devices that are essentially impermeable to water and tissue fluids. Thin insulating coatings will be fabricated by a low-temperature sputtering process. High quality coatings will be formed into a specially engineered multilayer structure designed to enhance interfacial bonding and eliminate pin-holes. The resultant insulating coatings may be used as an outer protective barrier for neural prosthetic implants. This includes neural microprobes and their connecting fixtures.
