The switching layer with SiGeOx/SiGeON structure is investigated to improve the electrical characteristics of resistive nonvolatile memory. A bipolar resistance switching behavior owning inferior stability was observed in Pt/SiGeOx/TiN memory cells. To obtain practical memory, a convenient and compatible SiGeON (∼5 nm) is introduced at SiGeOx/anode interface to stabilize the disruption length of filaments near anode electrode. Compared with Pt/SiGeOx/TiN memory cells, the proposed Pt/SiGeO x/SiGeON/TiN cells is effective at minimizing the dispersions of memory switching parameters.
