Fun-COMP creates first ever integrated nanoscale device programmable with either photons or electrons
The team have created the first-ever integrated nanoscale device programmable with either photons or electrons. This device helps achieve faster and more energy efficient computer memories and processors. Fun-COMP is a collaboration between researchers at Universities of Exeter, Oxford and Münster, along with IBM Zurich, Thales Saclay, IMEC and C2N-CNRS.
The findings are detailed in the paper Plasmonic nanogap enhanced phase change devices with dual electrical-optical functionality, which Prof. C. David Wright co-authored.
