Scientists develop a memristor that can be conditioned just like a real synapse

Scientists develop a memristor that can be conditioned just like a real synapse The memristor is made of a silicon-oxygen-nitrogen material laced with clumps of silver nanoparticles at the electrical terminals.When current is applied across the memristor, the silver nanoparticles shuffle around within their parent oxynitride matrix, to line up within a lightning-bolt-like path of least electrical resistance.

2016 Nobel Prize in Chemistry awarded for nanomachines

2016 Nobel Prize in Chemistry awarded for nanomachines Jean-Pierre Sauvage, Fraser Stoddart, and Bernard Feringa have been awarded the 2016 Nobel Prize in Chemistry “for the design and synthesis of molecular machines.Things didn’t go exactly the way he envisioned, but his ideas have been made real with the gallery of nanomachines Sauvage, Stoddart, and Feringa have made.
