Abstract

We report on the activation, inhibition and propagation of controllable neuron-like spiking signals at sub-nanosecond speeds (>7 orders of magnitude faster than neurons) in artificial optical neurons based upon Vertical-Cavity Surface-Emitting Lasers. These results offer great prospects for future ultrafast photon-enabled neuromorphic computing platforms.
