Abstract: Iontronics is a newly emerging interdisciplinary concept that bridges electronics and ionics. It provides new opportunities for biomimic information processing. Iontronic devices can act as building blocks for neuromorphic platforms. Here, a proof-of-principle Hodgkin–Huxley artificial synaptic membrane is proposed for the first time based on inorganic proton conductor. Phosphosilicate glass-based proton conductor electrolyte demonstrates unique short-term volatile charging behaviors, indicating potential short-term synaptic plasticity applications. By using protonic/electronic hybrid oxide transistor configuration, dynamic synaptic membrane potential responses are triggered with gate current spikes. Typical resting potential, excitatory/inhibitory postsynaptic potential behaviors, and membrane depolarization/activation behaviors are mimicked on the proposed Hodgkin–Huxley artificial synaptic membrane. Moreover, proton-related electrostatic coupling enables the device to possess short-term synaptic plasticities with low power consumption. The proposed Hodgkin–Huxley artificial synaptic membrane provides a new prototype for neuromorphic system applications.
