Special Session A-10
Emerging Non-volatile Memory Devices
Invited Speakers

Session organizer:
Dr. Shashi Paul, De Montfort University, Leicester, UK

Nonvolatile electronic memories are key components of many electronic systems that require high-density data storage (for example: mobile phones, palm-tops, i-pads, electronic books, computers, e-papers, etc.). Recently, there has been interest in the utilisation of organic materials, phase change materials, nanoparticles in hybrid organic & inorganic memory devices, molecules, nanodots, charge trapping & blocking dielectric and functional ferroelectric materials. The session will capture such new developments in these fields and we will consider abstracts related to the following topics (but not limited to):
  • Molecular memory devices
  • Use of molecules and nano-particles in polymer memory devices
  • Hybrid organic & inorganic memory devices
  • Ferro-electric organic and inorganic memory devices
  • Semiconducting and metallic functional quantum-dot based memory devices
  • Functional dielectrics, charge trapping, and charge blocking
  • Nanoelectromechanical data storage systems
  • Resistive Memory Devices
  • Phase Change Memory materials and devices
