Neuromorphic memory: LMGP joins forces with MIT

MIT issues a call for projects every year. In January of this year the school launched a 20-month partnership with LMGP. The partners will investigate new types of neuromorphic memory in which the resistance does not vary between two states, but rather between a minimum and maximum level separated by one to two orders of magnitude. The principle mirrors how the brain’s synapses work. Cerium, hafnium, and zirconium oxides will be placed between two electrodes that will communicate by ionic (anion or cation) motion.
The French-American team of six scientists will select materials and combinations of materials, fabricate the devices (at the CEA upstream technology platform, or PTA), and characterize them to gain an understanding of the structural and chemical phenomena at work.
