Thermal Memory: A Storage of Phononic Information


Thermal Memory: A Storage of Phononic Information

Lei Wang et al. Phys Rev Lett. .


Memory is an indispensible element for a computer in addition to logic gates. In this Letter we report a model of thermal memory. We demonstrate via numerical simulation that thermal (phononic) information stored in the memory can be retained for a long time without being lost and more importantly can be read out without being destroyed. The possibility of experimental realization is also discussed.
