AbstractThe current fluctuations in a polystyrene matrix (PS) doped by gold nanoparticles (Au-NPs) and small conjugated molecules of 8-hydroxyquinoline (8HQ) have been characterized. The electrical properties of the PS composite allow using it as a responsive layer in non-volatile memory devices due to its switching capability between two well separated conducting states. The analysis of current fluctuations at fixed bias voltages showed the presence of two states in charge carrier transport… CONTINUE READING
