Speakers: Professor Sabyasachi Bhattacharya, former Director of the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research

Every two years the Institute of Physics sponsors a lecture tour in the UK by an eminent Indian physicist.
Searches for novel, rapid-access, non-volatile and multifunctional memory continues at a rapid pace in order to satisfy the ever-increasing demand for enhanced computing capability. Complementing this demand are fundamental studies of what constitutes robust memory and how. Recent developments in scanning probe microscopy techniques allow one to “see” the extent of spatial ordering in "disordered' condensed matter ground states in ferroelectrics, ferromagnets and multi-ferroic systems. Imaging studies in the mesoscopic scale capture the extent of order parameter correlations in these metastable and generically glassy ground states. The utility of these states for non-volatile memory because of their ability to "remember and forget" will be illustrated.
