This volume from the April 2006 symposium focuses on alloys containing chalcogen atoms that undergo very rapid phase transitions under the influence of either electrical or optical excitation. The alloy of greatest interest is Ge2Sb2Te5 also known as GST225. The 24 papers explore phase-change memories, novel phase-change devices, material properties, and phase transitions. Topics include localized light focusing and super resolution readout via chalcogenide thin film, photo-induced metastable state of S8 clusters in liquid sulfur, thin films prepared by RF magnetron sputtering, fast photodarkening in amorphous chalcogenide, and simulating liquid GeTe.
