Ultrafast ‘camera’ captures hidden behavior of potential ‘neuromorphic’ material

Imagine a computer that can think as fast as the human brain while using very little energy. That’s the goal of scientists seeking to discover or develop ‘neuromorphic’ materials that can send and process signals as easily as the brain’s neurons and synapses. In a paper just published scientists describe surprising new details about vanadium dioxide, one of the most promising neuromorphic materials.
