Nanowire (NW) structure is superior at defining the direction of device due to its one-dimension feature. In this work, the p-n ZnO NWs were successfully synthesized, and were able to vertically grow on Ta2O5 substrate. Thus, the well-performed Au/p-n ZnO NWs/Ta2O5/Au one-diode one-memoristor device was fabricated. The p-n ZnO NWs not only exhibited excellent rectifying behavior, but also played the role of oxygen storing during filaments formation. Therefore, the low-leakage device aimed to build high-density crossbar arrays which was required for accelerating the combination of 5 G with AI in near future applications.
