On-Chip Photonic Synapse Mimics Workings of Neural Synapse

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email
A photonic computer chip that imitates the way the brain’s synapses work to store and process information — only at speeds a thousand times faster than those of the human brain — could pave the way for computers that work in a way similar to the human brain, but with the speed and power efficiency of photonic systems. A research team of scientists from Oxford, Münster and Exeter Universities has demonstrated a fully integrated all-photonic synapse based on phase-change materials (PCMs). The light-based synapse resembles the neural synapse at the physical level and...Read full article
