A Family of Electronically Reconfigurable Nanodevices



original image

AFM image of 17 nanodevices with a zoom-in cartoon schematically shows an individual crosspoint device consisting of two Pt metal electrodes separated by a TiO2 bi-layer memristive material. By applying an electric field across the memristive material, oxygen vacancies can drift up and down, leading to four current-transport end-states. The switching between these end-states results in a family of nanodevices.
