Abstract: 
Inspired by neurobiology, neuromorphic computing is proposed to cope with complex cognitional tasks through emulating spiking neural networks consisting of artificial synapses, aiming at overcoming the von Neumann bottleneck in conventional computational paradigms. In this Thesis, we have investigated the optical properties of the LaAlO3/SrTiO3 interfaces, which can be exploited as artificial optical synapses due to their wavelength-dependent time-correlated photoconductance.

We discuss the physical origin of the observed correlated photoresponse in epitaxial LaAlO3/SrTiO3 interface. Additionally, we have explored the photoconductance of amorphous LaAlO3/SrTiO3 interfaces, where the conductance is sensitive to illumination conditions in well-lighted environments. We include a discussion about the perspective of using the persistent photoconductance of LaAlO3/SrTiO3 quantum wells to applications in neuromorphic vision.
