Flexible electodes consisting of a thin gold film sputtered onto a polyimide are manufactured in the cleanroom. A complex process of photolithography, plasma etching, spin-coating and DC sputtering make it possible to form the micron-sized electrode traces. The electrodes are implanted in rats for neurological studies.
