Paper Title:
Resistive Electrical Switching of Nonvolatile Memories from Electrodeposited Copper Tetracyanoquinodimethane (CuTCNQ)
  Abstract

CuTCNQ is a charge transfer complex displaying resistive electrical switching when sandwiched between Cu and Al contacts. Corresponding memory cells switch from a native high resistive OFF state (HRS) to a low resistive ON state (LRS) by applying a negative voltage to the Al with respect to the Cu. Inversion of the signal polarity leads to switching from the LRS to the HRS. Typical CuTCNQ preparation occurs by a chemical reaction of a Cu substrate with TCNQ, involving (partial) corrosion of the metal. In this contribution we present electrodeposition of CuTCNQ on Au and Pt substrates, leading – in contrast to previously published dendritically crystal growth – to relatively smooth, micrometer thick layers. Corresponding large area cross-bar memory arrays (200€m by 200€m, with Al top contacts) exhibited up to several thousand write/erase cycles with an ON/OFF current ratio of 5-10. Furthermore preliminary growth experiments with blanket tungsten bottom contact Metal–Oxide–Semiconductor (CMOS) wafers with 250 nm diameter contact holes showed that electrodeposition is a suitable method for CuTCNQ integration.
