During the MemrisTec2023 workshop, Tommaso Rizzi received one of the two MemrisTec Young Researcher Awards 2023 for his paper „Exploring Process-Voltage-Temperature Variations Impact on 4T1R Multiplexers for Energy-aware Resistive RAM-based FPGAs“, published in 10/2022 at the IEEE International Integrated Reliability Workshop (IIRW) in South Lake Tahoe, CA, USA.
Within his paper Tommaso Rizzi evaluated a promising way towards the implementation of RRAM based devices coupled with large sized multiplexers into FPGAs. His results provide considerable improvements in terms of energy consumption and speed of modern FPGAs.
All the best for Tommaso Rizzi!
During the workshop MemrisTec2023 Eter Mgeladze (NaMLab, BioMCross Projekt) received one of the two MemrisTec Young Researcher Awards 2023 for her paper „An Analog Memristive and Memcapacitive Device for Neuromorphic Computing“, which she presented at the conference IEEE International Conference on Electronics, Circuits and Systems (ICECS) in Glasgow, Scotland in 10/2022.
In this multi-disciplinary work research spans from material and device optimization, via electrical characterization towards basic modeling of the devices properties. One focus is the investigation of frequency-dependent potentiation and depression properties of analogue switching memristive devices. Moreover, there is a comparatively novel aspect – the interplay between memristive and memcapacitive properties within one device. The results are the base for more sophisticated modeling, that will lead to conception of new devices and circuits for low power neuromorphic systems, and as such is very timely, interesting and useful for the broader community.
All the best for Eter Mgeladze!
Prof. Dr. Catherine Dubourdieu, leading the MIMEC project within MemrisTec, has been awarded a prestigious ERC Advanced Grant for her research project “LUCIOLE”, which aims at combining ferroelectric polar textures with conventional silicon technologies.

In the priority program MemrisTec women play a crucial role in the research of memristive devices toward smart systems. But also we are far away from gender equality – which is why we want to continue to encourage young women to head to (STEM) sciences.
Congratulations to our BioMCross-team for receiving the Best Paper in Electronics-Award at the MOCAST2022 conference for their publication: “SPICE Compact Model for an Analog Switching Niobium Oxide Memristor“.
The MemrisTec Board selected Leon Brackmann from RWTH Aachen for receiving the first MemrisTec Young Researcher Award for the best project presentation during the MemrisTec 2022 workshop.
„The winner exhibited excellent presentation skills. He was succint and was able to respond to the questions in a satisfying manner. His research is timesly and very useful for the broader community, and most importantly his results can be used as design guidlines for real-world-memristor-based applications.“
Machine Learning Workshops in Schools
To encourage schoolgirls to STEAM and cliché-free career choices MemrisTec will start offering workshops, e.g. on machine learning, not only at Girls’Day but also in schools for more women in stem subjects.
The chair of Computer Engineering is now lead by Dr. Marc Reichenbach, who substitutes Prof. Dr.-Ing. habil. Michael Hübner, the new Vice President for Research and Transfer at BTU.
