The newly patented technology enables medical device manufacturers to capture improved performance, efficiency and longevity in such devices, according to a news release.
Quakertown, Pa.-based Pulse Technologies’ HSR, a novel surface restructuring technique, bombards the electrode’s surface with what the company touts as ultra-fast, ultra-short and high-energy laser pulses. The pulses increase the electrode’s available electrochemical surface area, enhancing both charge storage capacity and specific capicitance of the electrode’s surface while reducing impedance.
Additionally, the platform offers surface tunability, high surface area and hierarchical surface structure. It is suitable for use across a number of applications, applicable on complex geometries, scalable and commercially viable and applicable on finished medical device assemplies. Pulse said it is also compatible with individual electrodes, subcomponents and fully assembled leads.
