The characteristics of silicon-oxide-nitride-oxide-silicon-type memories embedded with cerium oxide nanocrystals were demonstrated. They were fabricated by depositing a thin Ce O2 film on the Si O2 tunneling layer and subsequently rapid-thermal annealing process. The mean size and aerial density of the Ce O2 nanocrystals embedded in Si O2 are estimated to be about 8-10 nm and (3-7) × 1011 cm-2 after a high-temperature annealing with different ambients on 900 °C. The program/erase behaviors and data retention characteristics were described to demonstrate its advantages for nonvolatile memory device applications.
