Memlumor: a Luminescent Memory Device for Energy-Efficient Photonic Neuromorphic Computing

In this talk, I will discuss how the concept of memlumor – a luminophore with memory has been recently developed [1-2]. The talk will start with an explanation of a generalized memory device [3]. Then, an introduction to photoluminescence of semiconductors will be given. Afterwards, in the framework of the Shockley-Read-Hall recombination model [4-5], the paradigm of memlumor will be introduced [1-2]. Finally, all the parts will come together to introduce metal halide perovskite memlumors. Here, basic experiments and theory regarding memlumor dynamics will be described. Some vision and applications relevant to memlumor-based photonic neuromorphic computing will be provided at the end.
