Electrochemical properties and application stability of coatings for cardiac pacing and neuromodulation devices

Coatings have to be optimized in order to enhance the electrode tissue interface properties for cardiac pacing and neuromodulation devices. During the course of this study, various metallic and ceramic coatings, which can be used in these applications, were deposited and the influence of material, thickness and surface morphology on impedance characteristics and application stability was investigated by electrochemical impedance spectroscopy and cyclic voltametry.

Electrochemical properties and stability of PVD coatings for the application in cardiac and neurological stimulation

An overview about the opportunities to apply PVD coatings with different morphologies on implants will be given. Using magnetron sputtering technology single and multiple layers of metals, alloys, composites and ceramics can be deposited. Stimulation electrodes for example are coated to optimise the impedance properties of the electrode tissue interface for cardiac and neurological stimulation.

Structural properties of PVD coatings on implants and their influence on stimulation performance in pacing applications

An overview about the opportunities to apply PVD coatings with different morphologies on implants will be given. Using magnetron sputtering technology single and multiple layers of metals, alloys, composites and ceramics can be deposited. These coatings can improve biocompatibility or wear resistance and serve as an electrical insulation or diffusion barrier.
