Kind Code:
A8
Abstract:
Provided are devices that have a distal portion configured to be implanted in a brain of a subject. The distal portion includes one or more emitters configured to emit light in the visible spectrum. The device includes a proximal portion configured to be external to the brain of the subject while the distal portion is implanted, wherein the proximal portion includes at least one waveguide in optical communication with the one or more emitters. The at least one waveguide defines a cross-sectional width less than 500 nm. The at least one waveguide is optionally coupled to a heating element that is optionally configured to adjust a phase of light within the at least one waveguide.
