Electrical circuit
To stimulate neural activity, an electrical power source is required. So Nano Retina has incorporated tiny cells in the bionic retina that harvest energy by photovoltaic conversion of laser light - provided by an infrared diode source in a pair of spectacles that a patient would wear. CSEM recently joined the project team, and Nano Retina aims to begin clinical trials in 2013. Credit: Nano Retina.
