Photonics & Nanowires Chapter 1

Modeling and Analysis of a Membrane-Based Randomized-Contact Decoder

Authors: J. Long, J.E. Savage

Affilation: Brown University, United States

Pages: 80 - 83

Keywords: nanoscale memories, nanowire decoders

Controlling nanowires with mesoscale wires is important in addressing nanoscale memories. In this paper we report on simulations and analysis of an implementation of the randomized-contact decoder that is based on the use of porous membranes. We determine the conditions under which the average number of uniquely addressable nanowires is maximized.
