In 1971, Leon O. Chua published a seminal paper on the missing basic circuit element. Leon O. Chua and Sung-Mo Kang published a paper, in 1976, that described a large class of devices and systems they called memristive devices and systems. Just recently, Stan Williams and his research team at HP Labs unveiled a two-terminal titanium dioxide nanoscale device in Nature magazine that exhibited memristor characteristics.
This symposium will explore the potential of memristors and memristive systems as they advance state of the art nano-electronic circuits.
