Abstract

The charge-injection limits of activated iridium oxide electrodes (AIROF) and PtIr microelectrodes with similar geometric area and shape have been compared in vitro using a stimulation waveform that delivers cathodal current pulses with current-limited control of the electrode bias potential in the interpulse period. Charge-injection limits were compared over a bias range of 0.1-0.7 V (versus Ag/AgCl) and pulse frequencies of 20, 50, and 100 Hz. The AIROF was capable of injecting between 4 and 10 times the charge of the PtIr electrode, with a maximum value of 3.9 mC/cm2 obtained at a 0.7 V bias and 20 Hz frequency.
