In this manner an interested reader, and the cochlear implant surgeons in particular could gain insight into the subtle nuances of electrode design, and the manufacturing philosophies of the different companies.
Anil and Cogun, from the experimental study, observed and compared the performance of solid copper and copper-coated stereo lithography (CC/SLA) electrode. It was found that the internal cooling channel formed by SLA technology prolongs the life of the CC/SLA electrode by dissipating the heat of coating [9].
Among this family, Li[Ni.sub.(1-x-y)][Co.sub.x][Al.sub.y][O.sub.2] (NCA) is attracting much attention and becoming a promising candidate material for the positive electrode because of its highest capacity among the whole cathodes which have been used in mass [10-13].
