JOSEPHSON JUNCTION CIRCUITS FOR SINGLE-PHOTON OPTOELECTRONIC NEURONS AND SYNAPSES

NIST Inventors
Jeff Shainline , Adam McCaughan , Sae Woo Nam and Manuel Castellanos Beltran
patent description We recently invented and patented a new type of hardware for neuromorphic computing (Phys. Rev. Applied, 7, 034013 (2017) (attached to email). The key ideas are to use integrated photonic devices for massive connectivity nd superconducting electronics for efficient memory and

NEUROMIMETIC CIRCUIT

NIST Inventors
Sae Woo Nam , Jeff Shainline and Sonia Buckley
patent description We propose a NC system based on superconducting detectors and electronics working with waveguide-integrated nano-LED emitters to behave as complete spiking neurons. Optical signals are communicated through reconfigurable nanophotonic waveguides, capturing the interconnectivity of
