A nanofluidic memristor based on ion concentration polarization

Author affiliations

Abstract

This paper reports the very first nanofluidic memristor based on the principle of ion concentration polarization (ICP). ICP is induced through highly-ordered cylindrical nanochannels. These so-called nanocapillaries are formed within a glass layer on silicon through a thermal reflow process and low-resolution lithography. The current–voltage plots exhibit characteristic pinched-hysteresis loops and the concurrent tracking of fluorescent charged particles correlates the memristive behaviour to the ICP. The ICP-based nanofluidic memristor could have implications in emerging areas such as integrated fluid-based logic circuits.
