Sub-nanosecond switching of a tantalum oxide memristor. Academic Article uri icon


  • We report sub-nanosecond switching of a metal-oxide-metal memristor utilizing a broadband 20GHz experimental setup developed to observe fast switching dynamics. Set and reset operations were successfully performed in the tantalum oxide memristor using pulses with durations of 105 and 120ps, respectively. Reproducibility of the sub-nanosecond switching was also confirmed as the device switched over consecutive cycles.
