PhD student Mr. Swapnadeep PODDAR received the Best Presentation Award in the international conference of the European Materials Research Society (E-MRS)
PhD student Mr. Swapnadeep PODDAR, supervising by Prof. Zhiyong FAN has won the Best Presentation Award at the symposium Adaptive Materials and Devices for Brain-inspired Electronics in the international conference of the European Materials Research Society (E-MRS).
The title of the talk is "Nanostructured Perovskite based Resistive RAM for Future Storage and Computing". The research team developed a non-volatile memory device with ultra-fast operational speed (100 ps) and estimated data retention up to 28.3 years using perovskite nanowires as the active material. A memory cell size with footprint as small as 14 nm was successfully achieved which paves the way for ultra-high data storage density. The memory devices were also utilized to emulate biological neuron-synapse interconnects. With an aim to make AI vision more human-like, the devices successfully performed neuromorphic classification tasks mimicking visual cognitive learning models in humans.
The E-MRS and MRS (USA) are two major conferences for material research, with around 2,500 attendees for E-MRS every year. This year due to the pandemic, the conference was held online.
