A04 - Electrically conductive multilayer films for implant surfaces

Summary of the work programme

To understand and eventually to control the reaction of cells to electro-stimulation, many cells are to be exposed simultaneously to the same time-dependent electric field. Cells will grow on large (centimetre-squared) flat surfaces, which will be functionalised with ultrathin electrically conductive, multilayer films. These films are prepared by sequential adsorption of oppositely charged macromolecules and electrically conductive nanoparticles, with the adsorption sequence of the different composites determining the properties of each film.
