3rd Memristor and Memristive Symposium and Conference 2012

The 3rd Memristor and Memristive Symposium (part of CNNA 2012, the 3rd International Workshop on Cellular Nanoscale Networks and Applications) will be held on August 28, 2012 in Turin, Italy. The conference will cover advances in memristor and memristive circuits and applications. Topics covered include: New memristive device technologies, ala materials & fabrication Device models […]

Medical blood applications of memristors

Human blood has been used to model a biomedical memristor circuit by an Indian university group. In the study, the researchers, who are also studying diodes and capacitors modeled on, and built of, liquid human tissue, were able to model nv memristive behaviour for five minutes in both stationary and flowing blood. The research group […]

Leon Chua wins 2010 Guggenheim Award

Leon O. Chua has been awarded one of the 2010 Guggenheim Awards for “brainlike memristor circuits”, in his current position as a professor of electrical engineering and computer sciences at UC Berkeley (where he has been on faculty since 1971), and for his further work in neural networks, chaos and nonlinear circuits: Mr. Leon O. […]

What Are Memristors?

What is a memristor? Memristors are basically a fourth class of electrical circuit, joining the resistor, the capacitor, and the inductor, that exhibit their unique properties primarily at the nanoscale. Theoretically, Memristors, a concatenation of “memory resistors”, are a type of passive circuit elements that maintain a relationship between the time integrals of current and […]

Festschrift Dedicated to Leon O Chua

A reader who was (quote) “…browsing through various recent releases in the electronic reference “aisle” of Amazon, I came across this gem, a festschrift dedicated to Leon Chua from his 60th birthday, and thought you might be interested in the historical value. Partly since actual physical books on paper are becoming rarer and rarer.” Very […]
