Diamond Cybernetics: Nanocrystalline diamond for interfacing bionic devices with the human nervous system
Grant number: DE130100922 | Funding period: 2013 - 2017
Bionic devices will soon be used to treat disorders such as epilepsy, Parkinson's and depression. We will use diamond to create high resolution, permanent electrical connections between devices and the human nervous system. These diamond connections will preserve nerve health and make bionic devices more effective and able to last a lifetime.
