Best Paper and Best Poster Awards

Two recent conference contributions from NaMLab received recognition as the best student paper and the best poster.

At this years International Conference on Memristive Materials, Devices & Systems (MEMRISYS 2018) in Beijing, China, Melanie Herzig (PhD student at NaMLab) was honored with the Best Poster Award for the contribution "Improvement of the threshold switching characteristics of NbOx-based devices by engineering of the layer stack". This work experimentally investigates negative differential resistance effects in multi-layer capacitors using NbOx. These devices could be used for future implementation e.g. in cellular neural networks.

Furthermore, at this years Device Research Conference (DRC 2018) in Santa Barbara, California, the contribution entitled "Domain Formation in Ferroelectric Negative Capacitance Devices" by Michael Hoffmann (PhD student at NaMLab) was chosen for the Best Student Paper Award. In this work, the theoretical conditions for the occurrence of negative differential capacitance in ferroelectric materials when considering domain formation are discussed. These insights will be crucial in understanding how to improve the energy-efficiency of electronic devices beyond fundamental limits.
