Phase Change Properties of Chalcogenide Materials
Contact: Rob Simpson
This project is concerned with the thin film phase change properties of chalcogenide materials. The main aim of the project is discovery of new compositions which can be readily switched between the glassy and crystalline states. For optical and electrical data storage applications the materials should be stable in both phases, have a fast crystallisation time, require low energies to switch yet have a high crystallisation activation energy such that they donít spontaneously switch at normal operating temperatures.
