Probing of Ag-based Resistive Switching on the Nanoscale

  • A. Geresdi (a1), A. Halbritter (a1), E. Szilágyi (a2) and G. Mihály (a1)

We study the switching characteristics of nanoscale junctions between a metallic tip and a silver film covered by a thin Ag2S ionic conductor layer. Resistive switching phenomena are studied on samples of various Ag2S layer thicknesses. Metallic and semiconductor behavior are distinguished by current-voltage characteristics measured at room temperature and at 4.2 K.
