Transient and Flexible Polymer Memristors Utilizing Full-Solution Processed Polymer Nanocomposites

Abstract

Building transient and flexible memristor is a promising strategy for developing emerging memory technologies. Here, a transient and flexible memristor based on polymer nanocomposites, with a configuration of silver nanowire (AgNW)/citric acid quantum dot (CA QD)-polyvinyl pyrrolidone (PVP)/AgNW, is fabricated by full-solution process method. The obtained device exhibits reversible resistive switching behavior and a Dynamic Random Access Memory (DRAM) storage feature, with the significant merits of high ON/OFF ratio, low switching voltage, excellent reproducibility and desirable highly flexibility, indicating the outstanding memory characteristics such as low misreading, low power operation and low-cost potential. Moreover, an operating mechanism of charge trapping/de-trapping of quantum dots in polymer matrix has been proposed. Importantly, the memristor can be disintegrated in water within 30 minutes, promising candidates for transient memories. This work paves a new way for its potentials in transient electronics, implanted electronics, data storage security and flexible electronic systems.
