Taiwan’s Highest Scientific Accolade Goes to Rainer Waser
Waser and his group conduct in-depth research to better understand electronic phenomena at the Peter Grünberg Institute and at RWTH Aachen, which could be used to develop novel data storage, logic chips or in energy conversion, such as in redox-based ReRAM cells, for example. The physical chemist and his team work closely together with companies such as Intel and Samsung Electronics and are considered as pioneers in the area of redox-based resistive switching elements. Last year, Waser received the Leibniz Prize, regarded as Germany’s most prestigious research prize.
