Advances in devices and functional materials support cutting-edge and secure technologies for next-generation computing.

Electronic systems are based on binary information processing. Nonvolatile memories and new, more efficient circuit architectures enabled by reconfigurability on the device level are important factors in producing low cost and power efficient digital systems of the future. NaMLab utilizes its device know-how to enable new computing paradigms that go beyond what is possible with classical digital electronics. Materials that provide unique functionality like ferroelectricity or resistive switching are key elements in this effort. NaMLab integrates two important and interrelated research tasks in which material functionality is being expanded and improved while new device and circuit concepts are developed that utilize these innovative device materials.
