Phase Transition Devices
S.Ramanathan and V. Narayanamurti

 

Phase transition phenomena can have exciting applications in emerging nanoelectronic devices. We are studying field-dependent phase transitions in nanoscale oxides such as vanadium oxide. Figure shows conductance transition in a VO2 thin film device following a structural transition around 65° C.
