Findings from Hynix Semiconductor Yields New Findings on Applied Physics

May 13, 2014

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Physics Week -- Current study results on Applied Physics have been published. According to news reporting from Gyunggi Do, South Korea, by VerticalNews journalists, research stated, "Amorphous Pr0.7Ca0.3MnO3 (APCMO) films were grown on a Pt/Ti/SiO2/Si (Pt-Si) substrate at temperatures below 500 degrees C and the Pt/APCMO/Pt-Si device showed unipolar resistive switching behavior."

The news correspondents obtained a quote from the research from Hynix Semiconductor, "Conduction behavior of the low resistance state (LRS) of the Pt/APCMO/Pt-Si device followed Ohm's law, and the resistance in LRS was independent of the size of the device, indicating that the conduction behavior in LRS can be explained by the presence of the conductive filaments."

According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "On the other hand, the resistance in the high resistance state (HRS) decreased with increasing the device size, and the conduction mechanism in the HRS was explained by Schottky emission."
