Resistive Switching & Memristor Workshop
January 08, 2010 – January 10, 2010
Olle Heinonen Gergely T. Zimanyi
Resistive switching is one of those rare phenomena which brings together the most advanced theoretical concepts of first principles calculations and the arsenal of techniques developed for strongly correlated and non-equilibrium systems with the latest experimental techniques developed for the study of oxides and nanoscale phenomena. This confluence creates a powerful synergy . Further, recent lithographic breakthroughs have demonstrated that there is realistic promise that real circuit elements can be developed based on resistive switches. Excitingly, the resulting memristors may foster an entirely new paradigm in computer architecture, possibly mimicking the human brain for the first time. Our workshop intends to provide a creative environment to exchange ideas and set future directions in this exciting field, motivated by talks of its leaders.
