By exploiting novel transport phenomena such as ion selectivity at the nanoscale, it has been shown that nanochannel systems can exhibit electrically controllable conductance, suggesting their potential use in neuromorphic devices. However, several critical features of biological synapses, particularly their conductance modulation, which is both memorable and gradual, have rarely been reported in these types of systems due to the fast flow property of typical inorganic electrolytes. In this work, we demonstrate that electrically manipulating the nanochannel conductance can result in nonvolatile conductance tuning capable of mimicking the analog behavior of synapses by introducing a room temperature ionic liquid (IL) and a KCl solution into the two ends of a nanochannel system. The gradual conductance-tuning mechanism is identified through fluorescence measurements as the voltage-induced movement of the interface between the immiscible IL and KCl solution, while the successful memorization of the conductance tuning is ascribed to the large viscosity of the IL. We applied a nanochannel-based synapse to a handwritten digit-recognition task, reaching an accuracy of 94%. These promising results provide important guidance for the future design of nanochannel-based neuromorphic devices and the manipulation of nanochannel transport for computing.
