Fluctuations or drifts in switching voltages such as programming set/reset voltages and threshold voltage pose serious obstacles to the reliable operation of electrical phase change memory devices. Using a phase change memory device having a GeSb2Te4 phase change material and TiN electrode, these fluctuations are demonstrated to result from device(More)
Investigation of the Structural and Optical Properties of Ge-doped SbTe Films with Various Sb:Te Ratios Tae Dong Kang, Andrei Sirenko, Jun-Woo Park, Hyun Seok Lee, Suyoun Lee, Jeung-hyun Jeong, Byung-ki Cheong, and Hosun Lee Department of Physics, New Jersey Institute of Technology, Newark, New Jersey 07102, USA Department of Applied Physics, Kyung Hee(More)
An unconventional phase-change memory (PCM) made of In2 Se3 , which utilizes reversible phase changes between a low-resistance crystalline β phase and a high-resistance crystalline γ phase is reported for the first time. Using a PCM with a layered crystalline film exfoliated from In2 Se3 crystals on a graphene bottom electrode, it is shown that SET/RESET(More)
We report a fast single element nonvolatile memory that employs amorphous to crystalline phase change. Temperature change is induced within a single electronic element in confined geometry transistors to cause the phase change. This novel phase change memory (PCM) operates without the need for charge transport through insulator films for charge storage in a(More)
The Ovonic Threshold Switch (OTS) based on an amorphous chalcogenide material has attracted much interest as a promising candidate for a high-performance thin-film switching device enabling 3D-stacking of memory devices. In this work, we studied on the electronic structure of amorphous Sb-doped Ge(0.6)Se(0.4) (in atomic mole fraction) film and its(More)
ZnO films co-doped with fluorine and hydrogen were prepared on Corning glass by radio frequency magnetron sputtering of ZnO targets with varying amounts of ZnF2 in H2/Ar gas mixtures of varying H2 content. The ZnO films' electrical, optical, and structural properties in combination with their compositional properties were investigated. A small addition of(More)
We investigated the magnetotransport properties of Bi2Te3 films grown on GaAs (001) substrate by a cost-effective metallo-organic chemical vapor deposition (MOCVD). We observed the remarkably high carrier mobility and the giant linear magnetoresistance (carrier mobility ∼ 22 000 cm(2) V(-1) s(-1), magnetoresistance ∼ 750% at 1.8 K and 9 T for a 100 nm thick(More)
Interaction between electrons has long been a focused topic in condensed-matter physics since it has led to the discoveries of astonishing phenomena, for example, high-Tc superconductivity and colossal magnetoresistance (CMR) in strongly-correlated materials. In the study of strongly-correlated perovskite oxides, Nb-doped SrTiO3 (Nb:SrTiO3) has been a(More)
An experimental study is conducted toward understanding the mechanism of nonlinear optical properties of PbTe thin film that were demonstrated potentially usable for nano-optical memory based on super-resolution technology. By way of a real time optical-electrical characterization of a PbTe thin film device, it is found that absorption coefficient decreases(More)
In this study, dependence of the 3rd order nonlinear coefficients on the size of the Au nanoparticles in the Au:SiO2 composite films together with on the wavelength have been examined experimentally. Composite films with various size of the metal nano-particles at constant Au volume fraction were fabricated by the use of alternating deposition technique(More)
