The tutorial gave an overview of materials engineering and device optimization for relevant emerging applications, such as phase change memories, non-von Neumann computing and optoelectronics.
8:30 am – 9:45 am—Part I: Huai-Yu Cheng
Part I was presented by H. Y. Cheng and gave a comprehensive overview of the materials properties for phase change memories, with a focus on materials engineering for high temperature applications and for ultra-fast switching.
9:45 am – 10:15 am—Break
10:15 am – 11:30 am—Part II: Abu Sebastian
In Part II, Abu Sebastian showed how chalcogenide-based phase change materials can be used for non-von Neumann computing such as brain-inspired neuromorphic computing and memcomputing.
