During the last few years significant efforts have been undertaken in the search to understand the physical principles and to realize and implement the "universal memory". This is an idealization, which would combine high-speed recording and erasing (dynamic memory) and long retention time (non-volatile memory) into one memory. Our view of the ideal memory cell is a two terminal device, which consists of two electrodes with the active layer(s) between them. The material of the active layer must… Expand
