Synaptic Switching with Halide Perovskites

Project description

Harnessing ionic flows in perovskites could lead to neuromorphic computing architectures

Current is simply the movement of charge. Negatively charged electrons and positively charged holes carry currents in conventional semiconductors, whereas charged ions, including Na+ and Cl-, carry currents in biological cells. Typically, ion migration is an impediment in optoelectronic devices based on promising metal halide perovskite semiconductors. However, if harnessed and controlled, it could support the creation of artificial synapses and neurons for numerous applications. The EU-funded SHAPE project is characterising ion migration, leading to the rational design of novel perovskite-based artificial synapses and neurons for neuromorphic computation.
