Piezoelectric Nanowires Allow Electrical Signals to Be Produced From Mechanical Actions


July 25, 2011

piezoelectrically modulated resistive memory Taking advantage of the unique properties of zinc oxide nanowires, researchers have demonstrated a new type of piezoelectric resistive switching device in which the write-read access of memory cells is controlled by electromechanical modulation.
