The teams developed a highly reliable, artificial synaptic device with multiple values by structuring tantalum oxide – a trans-metallic material – into two layers of Ta2O5-x and TaO2-x, and by controlling its surface.
There are hundreds of trillions of synapses in one individual human brain, and these areas are where signals are sent and received.
Worldwide research on artificial synaptic devices, which mimic the biological functioning of a synapse, is already underway.
Dr. Lee said, “This research secured the reliability of existing artificial synaptic devices and improved the areas pointed out as disadvantages.
