Artificial Retina: Uncut Interview with Damien Rodger

Because the technology is still very new, the Artificial Retina cannot be completely machine made in an automatic process. In this Web Exclusive video, Damien explains how the electrode array of the Artificial Retina is constructed in a process that involves computer models, photolithographic technologies (similar to those used in photography), and integrated cicuit technologies (like those implemented in the making of your home computer).

Damien Rodger is a researcher for the Caltech Micromachining Laboratory. He is a M.D./Ph.D. student at the University of Southern California/California Institute of Technology.
