The influence of Ga dopant on resistive switching behavior of ZnO-nanorods film conducting bridge random access memory was investigated. Using a hydrothermal process, we grew vertically well-aligned and uniform Ga doped ZnO (GZO)-NRs films on transparent glass substrates to fabricate Cu/TiW/GZO-NRs/Indium Tin Oxide/Glass devices. The GZO-NRs film provides a diffusion path for the Cu ions to form a conducting bridge; thus, reducing the formation of a branched filament. The Ga dopant induces a significant improvement in switching distribution of high resistance states (HRS) and low resistance states (LRS). The 1.5 mol% Ga doped device exhibits good retention up to 104 s and high HRS/LRS ratio of 30 times. Therefore, our proposed device structure may be a good candidate for future conductive-bridge resistive random access memory application.
