Abstract

Model of evenly distributed traps in bulk dielectric is proposed for the resistive memory switching mechanism. Switching from high resistance to the low resistance state is explained by several-fold increase in trap concentration after the application of switching voltage. Both high and low resistance conductivities are governed by multi-phonon ionization and tunneling between neighboring traps. Thermal trap energy for oxygen vacancy and electron effective mass for crystal α-GeO 2 were calculated using density functional theory and used for the fitting of our charge transport model of resistive memory. The model was verified on the TaN-GeO 2-Ni structure with good semi-quantitative agreement with experiment.
