The width of the electrodes is not included in the current phenomenological models of memristance, but is included in the memory-conservation (mem-con) theory of memristance. An experimental study of the effect of changing the top electrode width was performed on titanium dioxide sol-gel memristors. It was demonstrated that both the on resistance, Ron, and the off resistance, Roff, decreased with increasing electrode size. The memory function part of the mem-con model could fit the relationship…

Non‐ideal memristors for a non‐ideal world

Memristor theory is extended to produce different types of non-ideality and it is found that including a background current moves the crossing point away from zero and including a degradation resistance leads to an asymmetry.

Uniform and Piece-wise Uniform Fields in Memristor Models

It is shown that the discontinuity is required for the Strukov model derivation to be completed, and thus the derivation as given does not describe a situation with a uniform field across the entire device.

The missing magnetic flux in the HP memristor found

Ever since real-world two terminal memristor devices were created, detractors have derided them as not `true' Chua memristors because there is no magnetic flux in the system. This report shows that
