Paper Abstract

This paper details our experimental progress towards the synthesis of self-assembled nanostructures that may exhibit collective computational activity. Self assembled two dimensional networks of heterostructured quantum dots, linked by resistive and capacitive connections, can function as Boolean logic circuits, associative memory, image processors, and combinatorial optimizers. Computational or signal processing activity is elicited from simple charge interactions between the dots which act as non-linear resistors. Such circuits could be massively parallel, fault-tolerant, ultrafast, ultradense and dissipate very little power.
