Taking electrons out of bioelectronics: bioprotonic memories, transistors, and enzyme logic
The ability of bioelectronic devices to conduct protons and other ions opens up opportunities to interface with biology. In this research highlight, we report on our recent efforts in bioprotonic devices. These devices monitor and modulate a current of protons with an applied voltage. Voltage-controlled proton flow mimics semiconductor devices with complementary transistors or biological behaviors such as synaptic-like memories and enzyme logic.
