Nonvolatile phase-change memory devices are three steps closer to reality

By Eileen De Guire / July 8, 2011

IBM Research chart compares memory technologies. Credit: IBM Research Two new studies serve as bookend demonstrations of the near-term potential for phase-change memory materials for use as nonvolatile data storage devices, and the long-term potential for these materials to change fundamentally what a computer memory is. A third study just out considers the efficiency of…
