Abstract

Neural node components consisting of III-V nanowire devices are introduced. This allows for the construction of a small footprint specialized neural network. A broadcasting strategy is developed which removes the need for inter-node wiring. As a model system, an insect brain navigational circuit is chosen and successfully emulated using the introduced nodes and network architecture. The results are based on electronic transport simulations in each device as well as finite-difference time-domain simulations for the broadcasting of optical signals.
