The invention provides an array of electrodes suitable for use as an auditory prosthesis. The array comprises a carrier member formed from electrically insulating flexible material, having a surface and a core, the carrier member including at least a pair of electrodes molded therein, the electrodes comprising a length of contact material formed in a semi-circular shape, having a convex contact surface and a locking portion defining an internal space. The electrode is molded in the carriers so that the convex contact surface of the electrode is preferably flush with the carrier member surface. The locking portion of the electrode is molded into the core of the carrier member in the electrode connected to a lead wire which is molded in the core of the carrier member. The invention further provides a method for fabricating such an array of bipolar electrodes.
