Samer Kurdi

3rd year student in Materials Science and Metallurgy

My research focuses on addressing capacity limits in conventional memory devices, due to restrictions on further miniaturization. I have fabricated innovative materials from sustainable and environmentally friendly components. These show novel switching properties with improved stability, crucial to safety and security demands in current information technologies. My results gained the attention of researchers elsewhere (including the ISIS Neutron & Muon Source, and Imperial College London), who are now studying my films using very specialized techniques, and have led to my receipt of the Japanese National Institute of Materials award, allowing me to conduct research in their facility at Tsukuba.
