• Non-volatile phase-change random-access memory (PCRAM) is regarded as a leading candidate for next-generation electronic memory hierarchy. It utilizes the pronounced electrical resistance difference between the amorphous and crystalline states of chalcogenide phase change materials (PCMs) to encode digital information. Fast and reversible phase transitions between the two states at elevated temperatures and good thermal stability at room temperature mak...
