A 12-month (possibly extendable to 24-month) post-doc position is open at CEA/INAC, in strong relationship with CEA/LETI on:
Quantum Transport at Very Low Temperatures in Resistive Memories
Applications are awaited as of now.
Summary: Quantum effects observed at low temperature in low dimensional conductors are now well understood: conductance quantum, universal quantum fluctuations, weak localization effects, Coulomb blockade, multiple Andreev reflexions at normal/superconducting interfaces... They can even be used as the signature of physical singularities controlling electrical transport (tunnel or point contact, 1D filament...). This idea is the cornerstone of a new approach we want to use in order to shed light on the question of variability observed in nano-devices used as resistive memories (RRAM). This will be done both in "standard" dielectric RRAM, and in a new generation based on strongly correlated electron materials: Mott insulators.
