Project description

The Centre for Electronics Frontiers is a interdisciplinary Centre that delivers novel solutions for advanced sensory systems, energy technologies, and unconventional computing architectures. Our team encompasses diverse expertise ranging from materials process development to electronic devices, circuits, and systems. This knowledge, combined with our state-of-art facilities and strong collaborations with industry, enables us to off­er unique solutions to real-world problems. Our ambition is to push the frontiers of electronics through emerging nanotechnologies, disrupting current ways of thinking by innovating advanced nano/bio-sensors, safe and efficient energy storage solutions, and novel Hardware for AI. To realise this vision, we are seeking exceptional candidates to join our team, interested in devoting their passion to addressing some of the challenges we have identified. More information on the Centre for Electronics Frontiers can be accessed at: https://cef.soton.ac.uk

Project description: This PhD studentship aims at developing radiation-hardened (rad-hard) nitride memristor synapses for enabling artificial intelligence (AI) hardware accelerators in space.

This project exploits the architectonic of memristor technology to realize AI computing capability onboard the satellites and space stations. The student will be trained to fabricate memristor synapse prototypes and investigate their reliability towards harsh photon & particle radiations. The student will have the opportunity to conduct in-situ electrical testing at our collaborator’s or industry partner’s radiation facility, either in the UK or abroad. The final objective of this project is to build an application demonstrator memristor chips that will be launched to space (low earth orbit).
