One-step Fabrication of CdS:Mo-CdMoO4 Core-Shell Nanoribbons for Nonvolatile Memories with High Resistance Switching

Abstract

Nano-field-effect transistor (nano-FET)-based nonvolatile memories (NVMs) fabricated from one-dimensional (1D) nanostructures have attracted much attention due to their superior memory performance. However, the construction of NVM devices is relatively complex due to the multi-step process needed to fabricate the trapping/tunneling layers. Here we report one-step fabrication of CdS:Mo-CdMoO4 core-shell nanoribbons (NRs) for high-performance nano-FET-based NVMs. The CdMoO4 shell could serve as both the charge storage media and tunneling layer, thus greatly facilitating the device construction. The resultant NVMs possessed a large memory window of 60 V as well as a long retention time of 3600 s. Significantly, the devices showed an excellent resistance switching behavior with current ON/OFF ratio as high as 106, which is larger than most of 1D nanostructure-based nano-FET memories. A mechanism associated with defect states caused by the oxygen vacancies in CdMoO4 shell was proposed to interpret the memory characteristics. Given the excellent memory performance, along with the simple one-step fabrication process, CdS:Mo-CdMoO4 NR-based NVMs will have important applications in new-generation high-performance NVMs.
