Investigation of Phase Change and Metal Insulator Transition Materials for Switching Applications

Project by Turja Nandy

In this project, we will first deposit and characterize thin films of different phase change materials (PCM) and metal insulator transition (MIT) materials. Then we will fabricate DC and RF switching devices of different designs and will investigate the performances of different PCM/MIT materials in different environment. We will also investigate negative differential resistance (NDR) effect of PCM/MIT materials.
