Abstract

Data accompanying the paper: Prodromakis, Themistoklis; Trapatseli, Maria; Cortese, Simone; Serb, Alexantrou / Improved switching characteristics of TiO2-x ReRAM with embedded ultra-thin 2 Al2O3-y layers. In: Journal of Applied Physics, 28.03.2017.Abstract for accompanying paper: Transition metal-oxide resistive random access memory (RRAM) devices have demonstrated excellent performance in switching speed, versatility of switching and low-power operation. However, this technology still faces challenges like poor cycling endurance, degradation due to high electro-forming switching voltages and low yields. Engineering of the active layer by doping or addition of thin oxide buffer layers, are approaches that have been often adopted to tackle these problems.
