A ferroelectric-resistive random access memory consisting of a conductive BiFeO3 epitaxial thin film with a unipolar diode current modulated by electric polarization orientation is reported. This device has a memory that lasts for months, a sufficiently high on current and on/off ratio to permit ordinary sense amplifiers to measure “1” or “0”, and is fully compatible with complementary metal-oxide semiconductor processing.
