A multistate nonvolatile memory operated at sublithographic scale has been strongly desired since other nonvolatile memories have confronted the fundamental size limits owing to their working principles. Resistive switching (RS) in metal-oxide-metal junctions, so-called ReRAM, is promising for next generation high-density nonvolatile memory. Self-assembled(More)
Resistive switching (RS) memory effect in metal-oxide-metal junctions is a fascinating phenomenon toward next-generation universal nonvolatile memories. However the lack of understanding the electrical nature of RS has held back the applications. Here we demonstrate the electrical nature of bipolar RS in cobalt oxides, such as the conduction mechanism and(More)
We have demonstrated the nonvolatile bipolar resistive memory switching in single crystalline NiO heterostructured nanowires for the first time. The self-assembled NiO nanowires are expected to open up opportunities to explore not only the detailed nanoscale mechanisms in NiO resistive memory switching but also next-generation nanoscale nonvolatile memory(More)
We have demonstrated the construction of highly stable resistive switching (RS) junctions with a metal/NiO nanowire/metal structure and used them to elucidate the crucial role of redox events in the nanoscale bipolar RS. The presented approaches utilizing oxide nanowire/metal junctions offer an important system and platform for investigating nanoscale RS(More)
Electrically driven resistance change in metal oxides opens up an interdisciplinary research field for next-generation non-volatile memory. Resistive switching exhibits an electrical polarity dependent "bipolar-switching" and a polarity independent "unipolar-switching", however tailoring the electrical polarity has been a challenging issue. Here we(More)
On the development of flexible electronics, a highly flexible nonvolatile memory, which is an important circuit component for the portability, is necessary. However, the flexibility of existing nonvolatile memory has been limited, e.g. the smallest radius into which can be bent has been millimeters range, due to the difficulty in maintaining memory(More)
Electrically driven resistance change phenomenon in metal/NiO/metal junctions, so-called resistive switching (RS), is a candidate for next-generation universal nonvolatile memories. However, the knowledge as to RS mechanisms is unfortunately far from comprehensive, especially the spatial switching location, which is crucial information to design reliable(More)
Here we report thermal evaporation dynamics of Au nanoparticles on single crystal oxide substrates, including MgO, SrTiO(3), and Al(2)O(3). The size reduction rate of Au nanoparticles via thermal treatments is strongly dependent on not only temperature but also pressure. Lowering the pressure of inert Ar gas from 10(5) to 10 Pa increases the size reduction(More)
Analyzing sizes of DNA via electrophoresis using a gel has played an important role in the recent, rapid progress of biology and biotechnology. Although analyzing DNA over a wide range of sizes in a short time is desired, no existing electrophoresis methods have been able to fully satisfy these two requirements. Here we propose a novel method using a rigid(More)
This study demonstrates the effect of surroundings on a memristive switching at nanoscale by utilizing an open top planar-type device. NiO(x) and CoO(x) planar-type devices have exhibited a memristive behavior under atmospheric pressure, whereas TiO(2-x) planar-type devices did not show a memristive switching even under the same surroundings. A memristive(More)
