Thousand times faster microelectronic memories? A realistic prospect thanks to Czech scientists AV ČR

The Czech Academy of Sciences, 9.8.2017.

Over the past few years, the team of physicist Tomáš Jungwirth has been exploring extremely fast microelectronic memories that operate on entirely new principles, compared to present memory technologies. Following the last year publication in Science of a breakthrough experimental work of the team in this emerging field, a European project ASPIN is about to start now. It is coordinated by the Institute of Physics of the Czech Academy of Sciences, and the four-year grant of nearly four million Euro was awarded within the Future and Emerging Technologies scheme of Horizin2020. Besides the Institute of Physics and the Faculty of Mathematics and Physics of the Charles University, the project partners include three Max Planck Institutes and University of Mainz in Germany, University of Nottingham in the UK, and a Spanish company IGSresearch Ltd.
