Abstract

The fabrication of memory devices based on the Au/pentacene/heavily doped n-type Si (n+-Si), Au/pentacene/Si nanowires (SiNWs)/n +-Si, and Au/pentacene/H2O2-treated SiNWs/n+-Si structures and their resistive switching characteristics were reported. A pentacene memory structure using SiNW arrays as charge storage nodes was demonstrated. The Au/pentacene/SiNWs/n+-Si devices show hysteresis behavior. H2O2 treatment may lead to the hysteresis degradation. However, no hysteresis-type current-voltage characteristics were observed for Au/pentacene/n+-Si devices, indicating that the resistive switching characteristic is sensitive to SiNWs and the charge trapping effect originates from SiNWs. The concept of nanowires within the organic layer opens a promising direction for organic memory devices.
