Nanodraht-Memristor
Artificial Synapses Made from Nanowires
Jülich, 5 December 2018 – Scientists from Jülich together with colleagues from Aachen and Turin have produced a memristive element made from nanowires that functions in much the same way as a biological nerve cell. The component is able to both save and process information, as well as receive numerous signals in parallel. The resistive switching cell made from oxide crystal nanowires is thus proving to be the ideal candidate for use in building bioinspired “neuromorphic” processors, able to take over the diverse functions of biological synapses and neurons.

Today’s tunable dielectric with the highest figure of merit at room temperature and GHz frequencies is strained films of (SrTiO3)6SrO. The low loss at frequencies up to 125 GHz comes from the defect mitigating nature of the (SrTiO3)nSrO Ruddlesden-Popper structure; the tunability arises from imposing strain and dimensionality to induce a ferroelectric instability.
