Analysis, Characterization and Simulation of Memristive Devices and Systems

To emulate neurobiological mechanisms of memory and learning within solid-sate devices, quantum mechanical laws are translated into electronic devices, i.e. in devices whose geometric dimensions are of the order of the wavelengths of electrons. This requires a close collaboration between state-of-the-art device technological, atomic-scale analytics, measuring technology, and theoretical modeling. In this context, the scientific work of this research topic is divided into two synergistically closely linked parts: material characterization and electronic characterization. furthermore, both experimental part s are supported by device modeling.
