Faculty Dr. Shibwabo & Prof. Ateya co-author a book chapter

Dr. Bernard Shibwabo and Prof. Ismael Lukandu Ateya have co-authored a Book Chapter in the Book Nanocrystals in Nonvolatile Memory published as an imprint of Pan Stanford, New York and exclusively distributed by CRC Press. Pan Stanford Publishing is an independent international publisher dedicated to publishing the best in micro- and nano-scale science, technology, and medicine. CRC Press holds an enviable reputation as a leading and premier international publisher of scientific, engineering, business, mathematical, and forensic materials. Its authors are associated with academic institutions, laboratories, and businesses all over the world and include some Nobel Prize winners.

The whole book details the methods of fabrication of nanocrystals and their application in baseline nonvolatile memory and emerging nonvolatile memory technologies. All the chapters have been written by renowned experts and provide an in-depth understanding of these technologies. The book is a valuable tool for research and development sectors associated with electronics, semiconductors, nanotechnology, material sciences, solid-state memories, and electronic devices.

The book is based on the fact that in recent years, utilization of the abundant advantages of quantum physics, quantum dots, quantum wires, quantum wells, and nanocrystals has attracted considerable scientific attention in the field of nonvolatile memory. Nanocrystals are the driving element that have brought the nonvolatile flash memory technology to a distinguished height. However, new approaches are still required to strengthen this technology for future applications.

In Chapter 7 titled Data Recovery of Flash Memory, Dr. Shibwabo and Prof. Ateya present a detailed discussion on the vital topic of how data recovery can be achieved in Flash Memory. With the use of flash memory increasing coupled with portable flash drives, digital SD cards and other flash media becoming ubiquitous, all sorts of important information is often stored on them including important and sensitive documents. Loss of data can often cause a heartache as well as practical problems especially if these devices store important or sensitive information. Even for the case of NAND flash memory which is referred to as a non-volatile memory, the non-volatility of the data stored on it is guaranteed only for a specified retention time.

The readership of the book includes graduate and postgraduate students of physics, electrical, and electronic engineering, materials science and engineering, information technology; researchers in nanoscience, nonvolatile memory; and engineers in nanotechnology.

Dr. Shibwabo is currently the Director, Research and Postgraduate Studies in the Faculty of Information Technology while Prof. Ateya is the Dean of Research and Innovation and an Associate Professor in the Faculty of Information Technology.
