Webinar "Materials for Advanced Semiconductor Memories"

23.05.2018 (Wednesday)

The importance of memory for current and future computers and information technology cannot be understated. With computational architectures becoming data-centric, the role of memory is becoming ever more crucial, including the need for low power consumption and non-volatility, necessitating new memory technologies. Current dynamic RAM and NAND flash memories also continue to see significant improvements. Materials advances are critical for both. The May 2018 issue of MRS Bulletin reviews materials developments for new and improved memory devices covering new dynamic RAM, ferroelectric memories, topological memory using phase change materials, spin-based RAM, nanometal-based RAM, and scanning-probe based memory.

The talks in this webinar will expand upon the MRS Bulletin issue, and attendees will be able to interact-in real time-with the webinar presenters.

Time: 12:00-13:30 pm U.S. Eastern time
