Degradation of phase change memories

The Ge-Sb-Te layers used in phase change memories (PCM) degrade when left in contact with ambient air. Their crystallization temperature decreases and the selective oxidation upsets the stoichiometry...

Advances in Cholesteric Liquid Crystals

With their helical structure, cholesteric liquid crystals figure prominently in liquid crystal science. This book edited at CEMES at the invitation of MDPI Publishers (Basel, Switzerland) gathers a set of recent advances issued from different research groups.
