OPTOFEM2020

ICMAB SUMMER SCHOOL ON OPTICALLY CONTROLLED FERROELECTRIC MEMRISTORS

ICMAB-CSIC, Bellaterra, October 22-23, 2020

OPTOFEM2020

We invite you to the ICMAB summer school on “Optically Controlled Ferroelectric Memristors” OPTOFEM2020

It will take place on October 22-23, 2020, at the Institute of Materials Science of Barcelona (ICMAB-CSIC).

All-optically controlled resistive switching could offer advantages, in terms of energy dissipation and speed, for logic and data storage functions in solid-state devices. Ferroelectrics may constitute a building block of this emerging technology, when integrated in nanometric tunnel devices. The functioning of these devices, from photon absorption to the resistive switching involve a subtle interplay between electronic and optical properties, polarization effects and materials issues.
