Abstract: A phase change memory device integrated with a nickel monosilicide (NiSi) bottom electrode and a dielectric (Ta2 O5) interlayer was investigated. The presence of a low thermal conductivity thin film between the bottom electrode and phase change layer promotes heating efficiency in the device. Reset voltages down to 2.2 and 1.86 V could be achieved for memory device without and with the Ta2 O5 interlayer, respectively. In addition, low reset current of 0.66 mA and SET current of 0.2 mA were obtained for devices with Ta2 O5 interlayer having a contact dimension of ∼1 μm. Endurance of the devices was also studied. © 2011 American Vacuum Society.
