Biodegradable Frequency‐Selective Magnesium RF Microresonators
Congratulations to Matthieu Ruegg from Microsystems Laboratory for his publication in Advanced Functional Materials entitled "Biodegradable Frequency-Selective Magnesium Radio‐Frequency Microresonators for Transient Biomedical Implants"
An innovative microfabrication process is developed with minimal exposure to aqueous media to fabricate magnesium-based, water-soluble electronic components. The ability to selectively power and heat up microresonators made of biodegradable materials is a significant step towards the use of such devices as heating and triggering elements in implantable biodegradable medical devices, in particular for controlled drug release and thermal therapy.
