The potential and challenges of nanopore sequencing
A nanopore-based device provides single-molecule detection and analytical capabilities that are achieved by electrophoretically driving molecules in solution through a nano-scale pore, a unique analytical capability that makes inexpensive, rapid DNA sequencing a possibility. Expand
Circuit Elements With Memory: Memristors, Memcapacitors, and Meminductors
It is argued that capacitive and inductive elements, namely, capacitors and inductors whose properties depend on the state and history of the system, are common at the nanoscale, where the dynamical properties of electrons and ions are likely to depend upon the history ofThe system, at least within certain time scales.

An approach to use memristors (resistors with memory) in programmable analog circuits in which low voltages are applied to memristor during their operation as analog circuit elements and high voltage are used to program the Memristor's states. Expand
Phase-transition driven memristive system
Memristors are passive circuit elements which behave as resistors with memory. The recent experimental realization of a memristor has triggered interest in this concept and its possible applications.Expand
Quantized ionic conductance in nanopores
Los Alamos National Laboratory, an affirmative action/equal opportunity employer, is operated by the Los Alamos National Security, LLC for the National Nuclear Security Administration of the U.S.Expand
Experimental demonstration of associative memory with memristive neural networks
This work has demonstrated experimentally the formation of associative memory in a simple neural network consisting of three electronic neurons connected by two memristor-emulator synapses and opens up new possibilities in the understanding of neural processes using memory devices. Expand
SPICE Model of Memristive Devices with Threshold
A SPICE model for a memristive device with threshold voltage that has been proposed by the present authors is introduced and the range of applicability of the selected physical model is demonstrated. Expand
