HP figures out how memristors work

Using highly-focused X-rays, the researchers gained unprecedented understanding of a device they already knew how to make and use, but without a clear idea of the underlying mechanism. HP hopes memristor-based memory chips will run at least 10 times faster than equivalent flash memory chips, while using a tenth of the power. In the research, published on Monday in the journal Nanotechnology, the team said that it had new understanding of how current flow caused heating that changed the molecular structure of the device. It also said it had discovered memristors to be very close in functioning to the neurons that pass information around the human brain.
