Carbon nanotube neurotransistors with ambipolar memory and learning functions

Publikation: Vorabdruck/Dokumentation/BerichtVorabdruck (Preprint)


In recent years, neuromorphic computing has gained attention as a promising approach to enhance computing efficiency. Among existing approaches, neurotransistors have emerged as a particularly promising option as they accurately represent neuron structure, integrating the plasticity of synapses along with that of the neuronal membrane. An ambipolar character could offer designers more flexibility in customizing the charge flow to construct circuits of higher complexity. We propose a novel design for an ambipolar neuromorphic transistor, utilizing carbon nanotubes as the semiconducting channel and an ion-doped sol-gel as the polarizable gate dielectric. Due to its tunability and high dielectric constant, the sol-gel effectively modulates the conductivity of nanotubes, leading to efficient and controllable short-term potentiation and depression. Experimental results indicate that the proposed design achieves reliable and tunable synaptic responses with low power consumption. Our findings suggest that the method can potentially provide an efficient solution for realizing more adaptable cognitive computing systems.
