Memristors employing more "exotic" materials will probably make it into devices first
Memristors In Silicon Promising For Dense, Fast Memory -- BBC
Researchers have revealed details of a promising way to make a fundamentally different kind of computer memory chip.
The device is a "memristor", a long-hypothesised but only recently demonstrated electronic component.
A memristor's electronic properties make it suitable for both for computing and for far faster, denser memory.
Researchers at the European Materials Research Society meeting now say it can be made much more cheaply, using current semiconductor techniques.
