Abstract: We present an electrical-bistability device based on MIM-sandwiched structure. Poly(N-vinylcarbazole) (PVK) mixed with gold nanoparticles (GNPs) serve as the active layer between two metal electrodes. After applying a voltage, the as-fabricated device can transit from low conductivity state to high conductivity state. By simply using a reverse bias, the high conductivity state can return to the low conductivity state. An on/off current ratio as high as 105 at room temperature has been achieved. The memory effect is attributed to electric-field-induced charge transfer complex formed between the PVK and the GNPs. The device shows a good stability under stress test for both states and exhibits a high potential on Flash-type memory applications. © 2007 IEEE.
