Claim of US Patent No. 10,251,286

1. A method for the production of a medical implant for a human or animal organism comprising: a housing with a housing wall which comprises an area configured to be transparent to light, and an infrared transmission means or infrared receiving means arranged in an interior of the housing, wherein the area configured to be transparent to light has a lower thickness than a remaining area of the housing, the method comprising:applying a first metallic circumferential frame layer on a top side of a base substrate;
arranging the infrared transmission means or infrared receiver means on the top side of the base substrate and within the first metallic circumferential frame layer;
arranging a cover substrate on the top side of the base substrate which covers an area within the first metallic circumferential frame layer and which has the area configured to be transparent to light;
providing a second metallic circumferential frame layer corresponding to the first metallic circumferential frame layer at the cover substrate;
connecting the first metallic circumferential frame layer to the second metallic circumferential frame layer non-releasably such that the base substrate, the cover substrate, and the metallic circumferential frame layers together form the housing, wherein said housing is a substantially hermetically closed housing of the implant; and
arranging a circumferential frame between the first metallic circumferential frame layer and the second metallic circumferential frame layer, and the frame is connected to the two metallic circumferential frame layers non-releasably.
