The institute hosts a state-of-the-art multi-material cluster (NanoCluster) tool. The tool provides a unique combination of nine UHV epitaxial/deposition systems including MBE, ALD, and sputtering. It offers the possibility for in-situ growth of complex nanostructures from III-V and II-VI (ZnSe based) semiconductors, metals, oxides, magnetic and phase change materials. More: Nanocluster …


Logic and memory based on memristive circuits

Prior to the foundation of the PGI-10, JARA-FIT activities in the field of Green-IT explored the potential of memristive devices and memristive crossbar arrays for memory-intensive computing paradigms. The non-volatility of the devices enables logic-in-memory operations More: Logic and memory based on memristive circuits …
