Applications of Ab-initio Modeling in the Resistive Random Access Memory Technology
The seminar will take place in Building 241, Room A323.

Abstract:
Resistive random access memory (ReRAM) is one of the most promising candidates for future non-volatile memory technology. But the understanding of resistive switching mechanisms in transition metal oxide remains a challenge due to the microscopic and dynamic nature.

From Pinwheels to Quasicrystals: Investigations of C60 and Pentacene via Scanning Tunneling Microscopy
Abstract:
C60 and pentacene are archetypal molecules for the study of adsorption at surfaces due to their simple structures. Due to their strong optical absorption and complementary organic semiconductor properties, they are also used in the active layers of bulk heterojunction solar cells.
