Correlated oxides for neuromorphic computing by Javier del Valle

We are pleased to announce the invited talk given by Dr. Javier del Valle, Ambizione Research Fellow at Department of Quantum Matter Physics, University of Geneva about “Correlated oxides for neuromorphic computing”.


Neuromorphic computing, which mimics the architecture and components of biological neural networks, is an emerging technology which might overcome many challenges that traditional computing is facing. A neuromorphic computer is composed of two basic elements: neurons and synapses.  

We show how resistive switching can be used to mimic the functionalities of these two elements, focusing on volatile switching caused by the voltage-triggered insulator to metal transition. We will discuss several aspects of this transition, such as the underlying mechanism, the dynamics and its spatial distribution. We will also show some of our recent efforts towards emulating synaptic and neuronal behaviour using this phenomenology.


The talk will be on September 15th at 11:00.

The event is free and open for everybody, it will be at the Martina Casiano Auditorium (until full capacity) and online via TEAMS with the following link:
