Novel dry EEG electrode with composite filler of PEDOT:PSS and carbon particles

View Publication

Abstract

We have developed a novel composite filler with Poly(3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene) : poly(styrenesulfonic acid) (PEDOT:PSS), a biocompatible organic conductive polymer, adsorbed on carbon particles for biological electrodes. This composite filler enables to fabricate high-performance biological electrodes simply by adding it to resin in the same way as conventional conductive fillers. The fabricated electrodes achieve ion exchange properties similar to those of PEDOT:PSS polymers and therefore low skin and electrode contact impedance. Electroencephalogram (EEG) measurements show that these electrodes capture various brain activities and exhibit high correlation (≥ 0.9) to commercially available wet and AgCl electrodes. Additionally, each electrode can be molded into various shapes and structures while retaining its electrode characteristics. Therefore, the proposed electrode is promising for EEG measurement, which requires high comfort and signal quality.
