Abstract : This is a final report for the DEPSCoR grant titled Reconfigurable Electronics and Non-Volatile Memory Research. The primary purpose of this work was to investigate materials and fabricate devices that may display electronic properties useful for reconfigurable electronics applications and/or non-volatile memory. The grant enabled the development of microfabrication processes for exotic materials at Boise State University including material synthesis. Single-bit devices, 10 x 10 cross point arrays, 150 x 150 cross point arrays, and 24-pin DIP packaged parts were fabricated with over 10 different materials systems that showed promise for non-volatile memory and reconfigurable electronics. Materials explored included chalcogenides doped with transition metal ions and organics. Devices were discovered that displayed tunable capacitance. Additionally, devices displaying memristive behavior were discovered. This work resulted in two additional AFRL collaborations, an AFRL Educational Partnership Agreement, an SBIR Phase I and an STTR Phase I grant.
