Unveiling the Switching Riddle of Silver Tetracyanoquinodimethane Towards Novel Planar Single-Crystalline Electrochemical Metallization Memories
The switching riddle of AgTCNQ is shown to be caused by the solid electrolyte mechanism. Both factors of bulk phase change and contact issue play key roles in the efficient work of the devices. An effective strategy is developed to locate the formation/disruption of Ag conductive filaments using the planar asymmetric configuration of Au/AgTCNQ/AlOx/Al. These novel electrochemical metallization memories demonstrate many promising properties.
