Abstract: Molecule-based devices are envisioned to complement silicon devices byproviding new functions or already existing functions at a simpler processlevel and at a lower cost by virtue of their self-organization capabilities.Moreover, they are not bound to von Neuman architecture and this feature mayopen the way to other architectural paradigms. Neuromorphic electronics is oneof them. Here we demonstrate a device made of molecules and nanoparticles, ananoparticle organic memory filed-effect transistor NOMFET, which exhibitsthe main behavior of a biological spiking synapse. Facilitating and depressingsynaptic behaviors can be reproduced by the NOMFET and can be programmed. Thesynaptic plasticity for real time computing is evidenced and described by asimple model. These results open the way to rate coding utilization of theNOMFET in dynamical neuromorphic computing circuits.
