  • Several different projects --
    • Stretchable PDMS electrodes
    • PDMS-parylene ECoG
    • Transmitting parallel neural data via free-space optical link
    • semi-flexible hydrogel-parylene neural electrode.
    • The parylene electrodes with selectively patterned hydrogel provide stiff mechanical properties for easy penetration into the brain tissues and subsequent flexibility after insertion upon swelling of the hydrogel.
    • advanced packaging system with using a composite inorganic parylene combination.
      • Atomic layer deposited alumina-zirconia (Al2O3–ZrO2) composite layer can provide a conformal and nano-laminated coating on parylene surface in neural packaging systems in order to improve the hermeticity for long term implantations
  • Can't get the entire PDF. annoying.
