Abstract

We report an artificial optoelectronic synapse based on a copper-phthalocyanine (CuPc) and para-sexiphenyl (p-6P) heterojunction structure. This device features stable conductance states and their linear distribution in long-term potentiation (LTP) characteristic curve formed by continuous input light pulses. These superior synaptic characteristics originate from the fact that the number of photo-holes moving into the CuPc channel and photo-electrons being trapped at the p-6P/dielectric interface is constant at every light pulse. A single-layer neural network is theoretically formed with these optoelectronic synaptic devices and its feasibility is studied in terms of training/recognition tasks of the Modified National Institute of Standards and Technology digit image patterns. Owing to the excellent LTP characteristic and through the use of a unidirectional update method, its maximum recognition rate is as high as 78% despite the use of a single-layer network. This study is expected to provide a foundation for future studies on optoelectronic synaptic devices toward the implementation of complex artificial neural networks.
