AB - The conducting polymer poly(ethylene dioxythiopene) (PEDOT) has been investigated as a coating for visual prosthesis electrode arrays. The prototype electrode array was coated with PEDOT doped with two conventional anions: paratoluene sulfonate (pTS) and lithium perchlorate (LiClO4). PEDOT variants were analyzed for charge injection limit, electrochemical stability following continuous biphasic stimulation, accelerated ageing and steam sterilization conditions. It was found that PEDOT/LiClO4 was the most stable conducting polymer under chronic stimulation and high temperature circumstances. However, PEDOT/pTS exhibited acceptable stability in comparison to conventional platinum. © 2011 IEEE.
