Abstract / Description of output

Titanium oxide (TiOx) has attracted a lot of attention as an active material for Resistive Random Access Memory (RRAM), due to its versatility and variety of possible crystal phases. Although existing RRAM materials have demonstrated impressive characteristics, like ultra-fast switching and high cycling endurance, this technology still encounters challenges like low yields, large variability of switching characteristics and ultimately device failure. Electroforming (EF) has been often considered responsible for introducing irreversible damage to devices, with high switching voltages contributing to device degradation. In this paper, we have employed Al doping for tuning the resistive switching characteristics of titanium oxide RRAM. The resistive switching (RS) threshold voltages of undoped and Al-doped TiOx thin films were first assessed by Conductive Atomic Force Microscopy (C-AFM). The thin films were then transferred in RRAM devices and tested with voltage pulse sweeping, demonstrating that the Al-doped devices could on average form at lower potentials compared to the undoped ones and could support both analog and binary switching at potentials as low as 0.9 V. This work demonstrates a potential pathway for implementing low-power RRAM systems. Dataset for: Trapatseli, Maria, Khiat, Ali and Cortese, Simone et al.
