Funding Success: Co-funding for cfaed by Helmholtz Virtual Institute MEMRIOX Extended
Published on in NEWS
The Helmholtz Virtual Institute MEMRIOX VH-VI-422 (MEMory effects in Resistive Ion-beam modified OXides) successfully passed the mid-term evaluation. A commission of experts has assessed the research in the Virtual Institute to be very successful and declared their support for further funding until September 2016.
With this great success, MEMRIOX now enters its fourth year of funding. For the continued operation of the Virtual Institute, the amount of €2.4 million is available. The institute MEMRIOX, led by cfaed Principal Investigator Prof. Sibylle Gemming, deals with nanoscale structures which are based on oxidic compounds. Their electric resistance can be adjusted through current flow, an effect which permits them to act as electronic switches and non-volatile memories.
The Virtual Institute is a cooperation of eight partner institutions in Germany, Switzerland, and the United States. It is coordinated by the Institute of Ion Beam Physics and Materials Research at Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf. Prof. Gemming also holds the Chair of Scale-bridging Materials Modeling (SKALMOD) at TU Chemnitz.
