Drop-coated titanium dioxide memristors (2014)
Journal Article
Gale, E., Mayne, R., Adamatzky, A., & De Lacy Costello, B. (2014). Drop-coated titanium dioxide memristors. Materials Chemistry and Physics, 143(2), 524-529. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.matchemphys.2013.09.013

The fabrication of memristors by drop-coating sol-gel Ti(OH)4 solution onto either aluminium foil or sputter-coated aluminium on plastic is presented. The gel layer is thick, 37 μm, but both devices exhibit good memristance I-V profiles. The drop coa... Read More about Drop-coated titanium dioxide memristors.

Design of a hybrid robot control system using memristor-model and ant-inspired based information transfer protocols (2013)
Presentation / Conference
Gale, E., de Lacy Costello, B., & Adamatzky, A. (2013, May). Design of a hybrid robot control system using memristor-model and ant-inspired based information transfer protocols. Paper presented at Workshop on Unconventional Approaches to Robotics, Automation and Control Inspired by Nature

It is not always possible for a robot to process all the information from its sensors in a timely manner and thus quick and yet valid approximations of the robot's situation are needed. Here we design hybrid control for a robot within this limit usin...

Concept – including filamentary conduction in the mem-mon theory of memristance improves the model for ‘triangular’ memristors

Filamentary extension of the mem-con theory of memristance and its application to titanium dioxide sol-gel memristors (2012)
Working Paper
Gale, E., de Lacy Costello, B., & Adamatzky, A. Filamentary extension of the mem-con theory of memristance and its application to titanium dioxide sol-gel memristors

Titanium dioxide sol-gel memristors have two different modes of operation, believed to be dependent on whether there is bulk memristance, i.e. memristance throughout the whole volume or filamentary memristance, i.e. memristance caused by the connecti...

The effect of electrode size on memristor properties: an experimental and theoretical study (2012)
Working Paper
Gale, E., de Lacy Costello, B., & Adamatzky, A. The effect of electrode size on memristor properties: an experimental and theoretical study

The width of the electrodes is not included in the current phenomenological models of memristance, but is included in the memory-conservation (mem-con) theory of memristance. An experimental study of the effect of changing the top electrode width was... Read More about The effect of electrode size on memristor properties: an experimental and theoretical study.

Aluminium electrodes effect the operation of titanium oxide sol-gel memristors (2011)
Working Paper
Gale, E., Pearson, D., Kitson, S., Adamatzky, A., & de Lacy Costello, B. Aluminium electrodes effect the operation of titanium oxide sol-gel memristors

By a comparison between memristors made with aluminium and gold electrodes, this letter demonstrates that aluminium electrodes are an essential component of the TiO$_2$ sol-gel flexible memristor . Both slow varying `analogue' and sudden switching `d... Read More about Aluminium electrodes effect the operation of titanium oxide sol-gel memristors.

Towards unconventional computing through simulated evolution: Control of nonlinear media by a learning classifier system (2008)
Journal Article
Bull, L., Budd, A., Stone, C., Uroukov, I., Costello, B. D. L., & Adamatzky, A. (2008). Towards unconventional computing through simulated evolution: Control of nonlinear media by a learning classifier system. Artificial Life, 14(2), 203-222. https://doi.org/10.1162/artl.2008.14.2.203

We propose that the behavior of nonlinear media can be controlled automatically through evolutionary learning. By extension, forms of unconventional computing (viz., massively parallel nonlinear computers) can be realized by such an approach. In this...
