Project Title: Field Controlled Stimuli-Responsive Polymer Based On/Off Switches for Flexible Electronics
Project Introduction: In recent years, in order to reduce the size and power of the memory and logic devices, “Memristors” as considered as ideal candidates for non-volatile memory and logic operations. Flexible Memristors using polymers as flexible substrates has drawn research attention in the field of flexible wearable smart electronics.
The main objectives of the project are:
- To develop new multiple stimuli-responsive polymers by controlled polymerization, fabrication of thin films, and logic devices.
- To investigate the electrical transport of the device under changes in external electric and magnetic field.
