Activation

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.
