The Functional Materials and Microsystems group is conducting an Australian Research Council funded project into the newly developing field of memristors.
Memristors are considered the fourth, and until recently the missing, electronic circuit element. They have unique properties by which they remember their previous electronic experiences, making them suitable for multi-state and artificial memories.
We have demonstrated high performance memristors utilising amorphous SrTiO3 attaining multi-state switching and understanding nanoscale switching processes.
This research project is funded by the Australian Research Council (Discovery Project DP130100062, 2013-2015) and has received equipment funding from the Australian Research Council (Linkage, Infrastructure, and Equipment LE150100001, 2015 and LE120100004, 2012).
