All-optically controlled resistive switching could offer advantages, in terms of energy dissipation and speed, for logic and data storage functions in solid-state devices. Ferroelectrics may constitute a building block of this emerging technology, when integrated in nanometric tunnel devices. The functioning of these devices, from photon absorption to the resistive switching involve a subtle interplay between electronic and optical properties, polarization effects and materials issues.
The OPTOFEM 2020 school aims at introducing the scientific knowledge, in a tutorial style, required to contribute to this emerging field. Most reputed scientist active in the field will deliver lectures in a strongly interacting atmosphere.
The school is targeting an audience of PhD fellows and researchers initiating their activity on photoresponse in oxides, with interest on polar materials (ferroelectric), with applications spanning from photovoltaics to resistive switching.
The school will take place on 22-23 October in an online format.
The school will be limited to a maximum of 50 students, selected on the basis of their motivation and recommendation letter provided. Priority will be for PhD fellows and MSc students in the school-related field.
Deadline for registration is October 11, 2020. Registration is through the conference website.
