International Conference on Memristive Phenomena in Chalcogenides and Beyond
Berchtesgaden, Germany May 22nd - 25th, 2023
Memristive phenomena have the potential to enable novel computer architectures. Such developments are urgently needed to reduce the increasing energy consumption in information technology. Chalcogenides offer an exciting material platform to realize memristive functionalities by exploiting changes in atomic configurations, in particular the phase and valence of oxides and higher chalcogenides. To realize the full potential and pave the way for such technology, ultra-high scalability, fast switching kinetics, high endurance, and long retention times must be realized. This requires a microscopic understanding of the switching mechanism in these oxides and higher chalcogenides. This conference will discuss memristive phenomena with emphasis on the underlying atomistic mechanisms and corresponding switching kinetics, their scalability, and potential failure modes. A systematic understanding of the underlying material properties will be presented that could ultimately enable novel brain-like functions through neuromorphic computing. This will contribute to the design and adaptation of fast, non-volatile memories as well as energy-efficient devices. These are the main goals to unlock the technological potential of this unconventional class of materials. This international conference will highlight both recent achievements and future trends.
