"Interfacing neurons with nanoelectronics : from silicon nanowires to carbon devices"


In line with the technological progress of last decades a variety of adapted bioelectrical interfaces was developed to record electrical activity from the nervous system reaching from whole brain activity to single neuron signaling. Although neural interfaces have reached clinical utility and are commonly used in fundamental neuroscience, their performance is still limited. In this work we investigated alternative materials and techniques, which could improve the monitoring of neuronal activity of cultured networks, and the long-term performance of prospective neuroprosthetics. While silicon nanowire transistor arrays and diamond based microelectrodes are proposed for improving the spatial resolution and the electrode stability in biological environment respectively, the main focus of this thesis is set on the evaluation of graphene based field effect transistor arrays for bioelectronics. Due to its outstanding electrical, mechanical and chemical properties graphene appears as a promising candidate for the realization of chemically stable flexible electronics required for long-term neural interfacing. Here we demonstrate the outstanding neural affinity of pristine graphene and the realization of highly sensitive fast graphene transistors for neural interfaces
