    • Abstract

       

      Ag/La$_{1−x}$Zn$_x$MnO$_3$/p$^+$-Si devices with different Zn doping contents were fabricated through sol–gel method. The effects of Zn doping concentration on the microstructure of La$_{1−x}$Zn$_x$MnO$_3$ films, as well as on the resistance switching behaviour and endurance characteristics of Ag/La$_{1−x}$Zn$_x$MnO$_3$/p$^{+}$-Si were investigated. After annealing at 600$^{\circ}$C for 1~h, the La$_{1−x}$Zn$_x$MnO$_3$ ($x = 0.1$, 0.2, 0.3, 0.4, 0.5) are amorphous and have bipolar resistance characteristics, with RHRS/RLRS ratios $>$103. However, the endurance characteristics show considerable differences; $x = 0.3$ shows the best endurance characteristics in more than 1000 switching cycles. The conduction mechanism of the Ag/La$_{1−x}$Zn$_x$MnO$_3$/p$^{+}$-Si is the Schottky emission mode at high resistance state. However, the conduction mechanism at low resistance state varies with Zn doping concentration. The dominant mechanism at $x = 0.1$ is filamentary conduction mechanism, whereas that at $x \ge 0.2$ is space-charge-limited current conduction.
