The demand for highly scalable, low-power devices for data storage and logic operations is strongly stimulating research into resistive switching as a novel concept for future non-volatile memory devices. To meet technological requirements, it is imperative to have a set of material design rules based on fundamental material physics, but deriving such rules(More)
Bidirectional interdependency between graphene doping level and ferroelectric polarization is demonstrated in graphene/PbZr0.2Ti0.8O3 hybrid structures. The polarization of the PbZr0.2Ti0.8O3 can be effectively switched with graphene electrodes and can in turn alter carrier type and density in the graphene. A complete reversal of the current-voltage(More)
The local electronic properties of tantalum oxide (TaOx, 2 ≤ x ≤ 2.5) and strontium ruthenate (SrRuO3) thin-film surfaces were studied under the influence of electric fields induced by a scanning tunneling microscope (STM) tip. The switching between different redox states in both oxides is achieved without the need for physical electrical contact by(More)
The influence of non-equilibrium and equilibrium processes during growth of LaAlO3/SrTiO3 (LAO/STO) heterostructures is analyzed. We investigate the electronic properties of LAO/STO heterostructures obtained at constant growth conditions after annealing in different oxygen atmospheres within the typical growth window (1 × 10(-4) mbar -1 × 10(-2) mbar). The(More)
The next technological leap forward will be enabled by new materials and inventive means of manipulating them. Among the array of candidate materials, graphene has garnered much attention; however, due to the absence of a semiconducting gap, the realization of graphene-based devices often requires complex processing and design. Spatially controlled local(More)
Nanoscale redox reactions in transition metal oxides are believed to be the physical foundation of memristive devices, which present a highly scalable, low-power alternative for future non-volatile memory devices. The interface between noble metal top electrodes and Nb-doped SrTiO3 single crystals may serve as a prominent but not yet well-understood example(More)
The continuing revolutionary success of mobile computing and smart devices calls for the development of novel, cost- and energy-efficient memories. Resistive switching is attractive because of, inter alia, increased switching speed and device density. On electrical stimulus, complex nanoscale redox processes are suspected to induce a resistance change in(More)
In this study, the influence of the local oxygen vacancy concentration on piezoresponse force microscopy (PFM) measurements was investigated. Ultra-thin single-crystalline SrTiO3 thin films were deposited on niobium doped SrTiO3 substrates and analyzed using a combined PFM and local conductive atomic force microscopy (LC-AFM) measurement setup. After(More)
The control and rational design of redox-based memristive devices, which are highly attractive candidates for next-generation nonvolatile memory and logic applications, is complicated by competing and poorly understood switching mechanisms, which can result in two coexisting resistance hystereses that have opposite voltage polarity. These competing(More)
The behaviour of point defects in thin, epitaxial films of the oxide electrode SrRuO3 was probed by means of diffusion measurements. Thin-film SrRuO3 was deposited by means of pulsed laser deposition (PLD) on (100) oriented, undoped single crystal SrTiO3 substrates. (16)O/(18)O exchange anneals were employed to probe the behavior of oxygen vacancies.(More)
