Ferroelectric memristors may lead to brain-like computers

(Phys.org)—As electrical pulses travel through the body's nervous system, they are passed from neuron to neuron by synapses. A synapse, which consists of a gap junction and the cell membranes of the transmitting and receiving ...

'Negative capacitance' could bring more efficient transistors

Researchers have experimentally demonstrated how to harness a property called negative capacitance for a new type of transistor that could reduce power consumption, validating a theory proposed in 2008 by a team at Purdue ...

Electronic circuits with reconfigurable pathways closer to reality

Multitasking circuits capable of reconfiguring themselves in real time and switching functions as the need arises—this is the promising application stemming from a discovery made at EPFL and published in Nature Nanotechnology. ...
