Two potential applications of thin film phase-change materials are considered, non-volatile electronic memories and MEMS (Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems) actuators. The markets for those two applications are fast growing and rapidly changing, so new materials technologies with superior performance are of great interest. Devices made with thin film phase change materials are shown to offer significant performance improvements for memory applications and new triggering mechanisms for MEMS actuation. IP (Intellectual Property) analyses for both markets indicate significant new IP space in each of them. Rough estimations for cost and revenue are provided.
