New insights into memristive devices by combining incipient ferroelectrics and graphene

Scientists are working to create neuromorphic computers, with a design based on the human brain. A crucial component is a memristive device, the resistance of which depends on the history of the device - just like the response of our neurons depends on previous input. Materials scientists analyzed the behavior of strontium titanium oxide, a platform material for memristor research and used the 2D material graphene to probe it.
