Summary of Project

Memristors are promising nanoscale low-power resistors that have memory; they are shown to have various applications ranging from logic design to neuromorphic computing. One of the novel applications of memristors, which relies on their stochastic features is to use them to build Physical Unclonable Function for security applications. This project investigates the use of graphene-based memristors to implement PUFs. In the first phase, the design, modelling, fabrication, and characterisation of memristors will be performed. In the second phase, the project utilise the findings of the first stage to build PUFs and implement a simple hardware security device
