In situ TEM and energy dispersion spectrometer analysis of chemical composition change in ZnO nanowire resistive memories



In situ TEM and energy dispersion spectrometer analysis of chemical composition change in ZnO nanowire resistive memories



Analytical Chemistry 85(8): 3955-3960



Resistive random-access memory (ReRAM) has been of wide interest for its potential to replace flash memory in the next-generation nonvolatile memory roadmap. In this study, we have fabricated the Au/ZnO-nanowire/Au nanomemory device by electron beam lithography and, subsequently, utilized in situ transmission electron microscopy (TEM) to observe the atomic structure evolution from the initial state to the low-resistance state (LRS) in the ZnO nanowire. The element mapping of LRS showing that the nanowire was zinc dominant indicating that the oxygen vacancies were introduced after resistance switching. The results provided direct evidence, suggesting that the resistance change resulted from oxygen migration.
