Summary of "Artificial synapse based on van der Waals heterostructures with tunable synaptic functions for neuromorphic computing."

Two-dimensional (2D) materials and van der Waals heterostructures have attracted tremendous attention due to their appealing electronic, mechanical and optoelectronic properties, offer the possibility to extend the range of functionalities for diverse potential applications. Here, we fabricate a novel multi-terminal device with dual-gate based on 2D material van der Waals heterostructures. Such a multi-terminal device exhibited excellent nonvolatile multi-level resistance switching performance controlled by the source-drain voltage and back-gate voltage. Based on these features, heterosynaptic plasticity, in which the synaptic weight can be tuned by another modulatory interneuron, has been mimicked. A tunable analog weight update (both on/off ratio and update nonlinearity) of synapse with high speed (20 ns) and low energy (~7.3 fJ) programming has been achieved. These results demonstrate the great potential of the artificial synapse based on van der Waals heterostructures for neuromorphic computing.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The communication from a NEURON to a target (neuron, muscle, or secretory cell) across a SYNAPSE. In chemical synaptic transmission, the presynaptic neuron releases a NEUROTRANSMITTER that diffuses across the synaptic cleft and binds to specific synaptic receptors, activating them. The activated receptors modulate specific ion channels and/or second-messenger systems in the postsynaptic cell. In electrical synaptic transmission, electrical signals are communicated as an ionic current flow across ELECTRICAL SYNAPSES.

A protein component of the synaptic basal lamina. It has been shown to induce clustering of acetylcholine receptors on the surface of muscle fibers and other synaptic molecules in both synapse regeneration and development.

Pinched-off nerve endings and their contents of vesicles and cytoplasm together with the attached subsynaptic area of the membrane of the post-synaptic cell. They are largely artificial structures produced by fractionation after selective centrifugation of nervous tissue homogenates.

The voltages across pre- or post-SYNAPTIC MEMBRANES.

Devices intended to replace non-functioning organs. They may be temporary or permanent. Since they are intended always to function as the natural organs they are replacing, they should be differentiated from PROSTHESES AND IMPLANTS and specific types of prostheses which, though also replacements for body parts, are frequently cosmetic (EYE, ARTIFICIAL) as well as functional (ARTIFICIAL LIMBS).
