About the Project

Universal memory combines the best features of DRAM and flash, i.e. is non-volatile, low-voltage, non-destructively read, fast, cheap and high endurance. Implemented as RAM, such a memory would improve datacentre efficiency and allow instantly on/off boot-free computers and devices, with consequent reductions in power consumption. We recently demonstrated novel III-V compound semiconductor candidate universal memory cells (ULTRARAM™), and research is rapidly progressing towards device scaling, fabrication of small arrays and implementation on Si substrates.

The objective of this project is to develop and implement the III-V CMOS logic that will enable addressing of bits in large arrays (up to 1 Mbit). The successful candidate will join a team of two postdocs and a current PhD student working on this very high profile research. The PhD will be suitable for someone with an interest in semiconductor device physics or electronic engineering and in the wider societal implications of (materials science) research.

The Physics Department is holder of Athena SWAN Silver award and JUNO Championship status and is strongly committed to fostering diversity within its community as a source of excellence, cultural enrichment, and social strength. We welcome those who would contribute to the further diversification of our department.

Please contact Prof Manus Hayne ([Email Address Removed]) for any additional enquiries. You can also apply directly at stating the title of the project and the name of the supervisor.
