An Introduction to the Memristor
Atkin, Keith
Physics Education, v48 n3 p317-321 May 2013
In recent years there has been a revolution in electronics, with a variety of physical phenomena being utilized in the construction of new types of memory circuits for computer application. A device which has had an increasing role is the memristor, whose description and properties have so far had little mention in physics education. This paper provides a simple introduction to the concept of the memristor and how it is possible to fabricate and test a working device in the teaching laboratory.
