PLoS ONE 7(6): e38436. doi:10.1371/journal.pone.0038436 Conceptual schematic design for a system that harvests power from the cerebrospinal fluid, showing a plausible site of implantation within the subarachnoid space. The inset at right is a micrograph of one prototype, showing the metal layers of the anode (central electrode) and cathode contact (outer ring) patterned on a silicon wafer.

  • Sarpeshkar teams with researchers at the Lincoln Laboratory to develop an implantable fuel cell built that could power neural prosthetics that help patients regain control of limbs.
  • Research in Area I: Circuits emphasizes electronic circuits and systems, microprocessor based control, and digital and analog signal processing. Design and practical implementation are emphasized.
