Indexing Topological Numbers on Images by Transferring Chiral Magnetic Textures

  •  25 June 2024

Graphical Abstract

Description unavailable

A method is devised to identify the topological numbers of grayscale images using simple neural networks and a straightforward procedure of skyrmion number calculation. The method shows a stable performance against small noise and defects, compared to a traditional method. Furthermore, two applications of the method: topological analysis of the Modified National Institute of Standards and Technology (MNIST) data and the counting of blood cells in microscopic images are demonstrated.

Large Area Ballistocardiography Enabled by Printed Piezoelectric Sensor Arrays on Elastomeric Substrates

  •  25 June 2024

Graphical Abstract

Description unavailable

The utilization of thin and long piezoelectric sensors on compliant substrates allows for the remarkable enhancement of the effective transverse charge constant (d31). The approach is validated using the printable piezoelectric polymer, poly(vinylidene fluoride-co-trifluoroethylene) P(VDF-TrFE). Large area (60 × 90 cm) piezoelectric sensor arrays are printed and shown to be capable of measuring high-quality, spatially resolved ballistocardiograms.

Symmetric and Energy‐Efficient Conductance Update in Ferroelectric Tunnel Junction for Neural Network Computing

  •  22 June 2024

Graphical Abstract

Description unavailable

A mixed voltage pulse scheme is proposed to achieve symmetric and energy-efficient conductance updates. Using this scheme with a high-performance Au/PbZr0.52Ti0.48O3/Nb:SrTiO3 ferroelectric tunnel junction (FTJ), simulated artificial intelligence tasks reveal an impressive training accuracy-energy ratio (≈1.23% J−1), along with a high inference energy efficiency (≈85 TOPS W−1), which lays the groundwork for incorporating FTJs into neural network computing applications.
