All oxide-based transparent flexible memristor is prioritized for the potential application in artificially simulated biological optoelectronic synaptic devices. SnOx memristor with HfOx layer is found to enable a significant effect on synaptic properties. The memristor exhibits good reliability with long retention, 104 s, and high endurance, 104 cycles. The optimized 6 nm thick HfOx layer in SnOx-based memristor possesses the excellent synaptic properties of stable 350 epochs training, multi-level conductance (MLC) behaviour, and the nonlinearity of 1.53 and 1.46 for long-term potentiation and depression, respectively, and faster image recognition accuracy of 100% after 23 iterations. The maximum weight changes of -73.12 and 79.91% for the potentiation and depression of the synaptic device, respectively, are observed from the spike-timing-dependent plasticity (STDP) characteristics making it suitable for biological applications. The flexibility of the device on the PEN substrate is confirmed by the acceptable change of nonlinearities up to 4 mm bending. Such a synaptic device is expected to be used as a vision photo-receptor.
