In this research, our objective is to propose a honeycomb-type artificial retina device featuring a robust and flexible structure aiming to enhance neural stimulation. To achieve this, we have established a fabrication process using a smart CMOS iridium-based electrodes system. The critical component of this system is the stimulation electrode, which serves as the neural interface. To investigate its performance, we have adopted a facile solution-based deposition method for Na-doped iridium oxide electrodes, which has proven to significantly improve stimulation capabilities. Furthermore, we have thoroughly discussed the electrochemical properties of the iridium-based electrodes synthesized using different methods. Finally, we present the preferred synthesis method for fabricating the Na-doped iridium oxide electrodes to be integrated into the artificial retina device with a smart CMOS electrodes system.
Receiving the second-place poster award in the 13th World Research Congress: The Eye and The Chip is my great honor. This award underscores the significant recognition our research has achieved. Having this opportunity to share our research with the global community is especially thanks to Prof. Ohta, I would like to express my deep gratitude for the valuable guidance from all the professors in the Photonic Device Science Laboratory, as well as Prof. Pu-Wei Wu and Prof. Po-Chun Chen from Taiwan. Without the support of these professors, I would not have received this poster award.
