SHORT COURSE A Trends and Challenges of Non-Volatile Memory Technologies in the Big-Data Era

There is a growing demand for high-density non-volatile memory in the Big-Data era. Non-volatile memory is being introduced into each memory hierarchy (data storage, code storage, main memory, cashe, etc.) to achieve low-power and high-speed LSI system. In this course, five excellent lectures give a review on the trends and challenges of promising non-volatile memory technologies.

SHORT COURSE B Fundamentals and Applications of
Two-Dimensional Materials

This short course deals with emerging two-dimensional materials, especially transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDCs), such as MoS2 and WSe2. There are four excellent lectures focusing on physical, electrical, and optical properties of TMDCs, as well as their growth technology. Application of TMDCs to electronic and optical devices is also described. Possible application of TMDCs to ultra-short-channel transistors at the end of roadmap is also discussed.
