Project Title: An entirely light driven optical memory for energy efficient electronics
Project Introduction: Portable electronic devices like smart phones are becoming more and more important in our everyday life. One major nuisance however is the short battery lifetime. To solve this problem, this project focuses on the development of solar cells that not only generate electric power via sunlight but can also act as memories. Such a novel solar memory can potentially replace the expensive and power hungry flash memories currently used.
