Phonon-magnon reservoir Researchers from TU Dortmund, Loughborough University, V. E. Lashkaryov Institute of Semiconductor Physics, and University of Nottingham were inspired by the human eye to propose an on-chip phonon-magnon reservoir for neuromorphic computing. In reservoir computing, input signals are mapped into a multidimensional space, which is not trained and only expedites recogni... » read more

DNA assembly of 3D nanomaterials Scientists from Brookhaven National Laboratory, Columbia University, and Stony Brook University developed a method that uses DNA to instruct molecules to organize themselves into targeted 3D patterns and produce a wide variety of designed metallic and semiconductor 3D nanostructures. “We have been using DNA to program nanoscale materials for more than a de... » read more

Fast phase-change memory Researchers from Stanford University, TSMC, National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), and University of Maryland developed a new phase-change memory for future AI and data-centric systems. It is based on GST467, an alloy of four parts germanium, six parts antimony, and seven parts tellurium, which is sandwiched between several other nanometer-thin material... » read more

Laser printer for photonic circuits Researchers from the University of Washington and University of Maryland propose a faster, cheaper way to fabricate and reconfigure photonic integrated circuits. The method uses a laser writer to write, erase, and modify circuits into a thin film of phase-change material similar to what is used for recordable CDs and DVDs. The researcher say the method co... » read more

Etching tellurite glass Physicists from EPFL and Tokyo Tech propose a way to create photoconductive circuits, where the circuit is directly patterned onto a tellurite glass surface with femtosecond laser light. The exposure formed nanoscale tellurium and tellurium oxide crystals, both semiconducting materials. “Tellurium being semiconducting, based on this finding we wondered if it would ... » read more

Memristor-based Bayesian neural network Researchers from CEA-Leti, CEA-List, and CNRS built a complete memristor-based Bayesian neural network implementation for classifying types of arrhythmia recordings with precise aleatoric and epistemic uncertainty. While Bayesian neural networks are useful for at sensory processing applications based on a small amount of noisy input data because they ... » read more
