  • Wahby, William (2007-12)
    Phase change memory (PCM) is a novel nonvolatile memory technology with great potential for scaling beyond the physical limits of Flash, at dimensions of 35 nm and below. Rather than relying on charge storage, PCM functions ...

  • Xiong, Leilei (2007-12)
    Solar cells typically produce about 0.6 V at maximum power output. However, many applications require 3.6 V. A conventional solution is to connect several cells in series to achieve the necessary voltage for those applications. ...
