Activation is a process which alters the charge capacity and impedance characteristics of a probe with iridium contacts, without affecting biocompatibility:
- Activated iridium increases the amount of charge that can be delivered during stimulation.
- For recording applications, activated iridium sites exhibit lower impedance than non-activated sites.
Our technical note on iridium activation provides an in-depth analysis.
