Research Description:

Characterization of Nonvolatile Ferroelectric Memory Devices

Ferroelectric nonvolatile memory devices serve as a potential alternative to traditional FLASH nonvolatile memory devices because of their lower write power and much greater cycling endurance. However, ferroelectric memory devices typically have a lower storage capacity than traditional memory devices. Thus, there is a need to investigate the fundamental characteristics of ferroelectric material in order to better understand how ferroelectric memory devices can be improved.
