      The Sr$_{0.88}$Bi$_{0.12}TiO$_3$/SrTi$_{0.92}$Mg$_{0.08}$O$_3$ (SBTO/STMO) heterostructure films were prepared on p$^+$-Si substratesby sol–gel spin-coating technique, and the films had good crystallinity and uniform grain distribution. The heterostructure films with a structure of Ag/SBTO/STMO/p$^+$-Si exhibited a bipolar, remarkable resistance-switching characteristic, and $R_{\rm HRS}/R_{\rm LRS} \sim 10^4$. More importantly, the heterostructure films showed rectifying characteristic in the low resistance state (LRS), and the rectification ratio can reach 10$^2$ at $\pm$1 V. The dominant resistive-switching conduction mechanism of high resistance state (HRS) was Ohmic behaviour, and the LRS changed to space charge-limited current(SCLC).

      SrTiO$_3$ and Bi-doped SrTiO$_3$ films were fabricated with different device structures using the sol–gel method for non-volatile memory applications, and their resistance-switching behaviour, endurance and retention characteristics were investigated. SrTiO$_3$ and Sr$_{0.92}$Bi$_{0.08}$TiO$_3$ films grown on Si or Pt have the same phase structure, morphologies and grain size; however, the grain size of the Sr$_{0.92}$Bi$_{0.08}$TiO$_3$ films grown on Si is slightly larger than those of the SrTiO$_3$ films grown on Si and the Sr$_{0.92}$Bi$_{0.08}$TiO$_3$ films grown on Pt. The SrTiO$_3$ or Sr$_{0.92}$Bi$_{0.08}$TiO$_3$ films grown on Si or Pt all exhibitbipolar resistive-switching behaviour and follow the same conductive mechanism; however, the Ag/Sr$_{0.92}$Bi$_{0.08}$TiO$_3$/Si device possesses the highest $R_{\rm HRS}/R_{\rm LRS}$ of 10$^5$ and the best endurance and retention characteristics. The doping of Bi is conducive to enhance the $R_{\rm HRS}/R_{\rm LRS}$ of the SrTiO$_3$ films; meanwhile, the Si substrates help improve the endurance and retention characteristics of the Sr$_{0.92}$Bi$_{0.08}$TiO$_3$ films.
