• To model the switching mechanism by detailed ab-initio molecular dynamics analysis. To understand the electronic states that control the electrical conductivity of the two switched states.
  • Use high resolution TEM to characterise CSL layers in SET and RESET states
  • To measure local atomic coordination in CSLs in SET and RESET states by EXAFS and XAS spectroscopy
  • To measure the physical switching mechanism using optical pump-probe technique.
  • To provide an electrical model of the material for device modellingr>
