While long-term implants have the advantage of being in a constant-temperature environment, these adhesive joints need to meet the additional challenges of complex loading conditions and ever increasing device-lifetime requirements. The principles of joint design, namely avoiding peel and cleavage-loading conditions, must be scaled down to meet the ever decreasing device sizes. Because the long-term reliability of an adhesive joint under wet ...
