Demonstrate memristor-like operation of thin film Flash memory cells

Memristors, resistors of which conductance is a function of the history of voltage applied to them, have attracted great attention in the present decade as potential components of memory and computing platforms. These long-forgotten device components were predicted over fifty years ago by Leon Chua, who described them as the fourth fundamental circuit element alongside [...]
Enzyme-like peptide networks enhance bone formation

Enzyme-like peptide networks enhance bone formation

Although produced in abundance by even the simplest of bacteria, the sheer catalytic efficiency of enzymes cannot be matched by any chemical catalyst – human effort cannot yet replicate what has been optimized through aeons of natural selection. The imitation of enzyme structure and function is therefore an important concern for the development of new [...]

IWANN workshop through participants’ eyes

IWANN workshop through participants’ eyes

UNAM’s fifth annual nanotechnology workshop ended two weeks ago, and we had the opportunity to interview its foreign attendees for their opinions. Here’s whatiwann-1 they had to say: “People in UNAM were nice, they were really helpful, and the facilities are very amazing. And Ankara is a quiet city, there is no noise like in [...]
