Nano Convergence is calling for submissions to our Collection on Neuromorphic computing: materials, devices, and mechanisms.
The neuromorphic device concept has attracted renewed interests in the artificial intelligent era. The human brain is composed of over 100 billion neurons interconnected by 100 trillion synapses. Although the synapses are currently slower than conventional electronics, they work effectively at 20 W, thus consuming much less power than the megawatts required by supercomputers. Synapses use not electron but rather ion (H+, Na+, K+, Ca2+, and Cl-) flow to transfer information. Therefore, new device paradigm has been developed to realize the neuromorphic devices. Furthermore, neuromorphic devices have been continuously advanced and expanded to other fields through the convergence with other functional materials and platforms. This special Issue aims to introduce re-cent interdisciplinary approaches for materials, devices, and mechanism towards innovative neuromorphic devices technologies.
