Sketch of the configuration of a light-controlled resistive switching memory. Light enters through the Al2O3 uncovered surface and reaches the optically active p-Si substrate, where carriers are photogenerated and subsequently injected in the Al2O3 layer when a suitable voltage pulse is applied. The resistance of the Al2O3 can be switched between different non-volatile states, depending on the applied voltage pulse and on the illumination conditions.
