A04 – Electrically conductive multilayers for implant surfaces
Summary of the work programme
Ultra-thin electrically conductive layers are generated on which numerous osteoblasts are simultaneously exposed to electrical stimuli. The layers are produced by sequential adsorption of oppositely charged polymers and electrically conductive nanoparticles. The relationship between layer structure, frequency-dependent impedance and modulus of elasticity is investigated to find favourable conditions for cell adhesion and growth. The ageing of layers and electrodes is also being investigated.
