103. Write-read-erase-read sequence results demonstrate the switching characteristics of the OBD. The cycling endurance number of the ON/OFF switching for the OBD is above 7×104. The current bistability and carrier transport mechanisms of the OBD fabricated utilizing hybrid Ag nanoparticle-PMMA polymer nanocomposites are described on the basis of the experimental data.The current bistability and the carrier transport mechanisms of organic bistable devices (OBDs) using Ag nanoparticle-polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) nanocomposites have been investigated. Current-voltage measurements at 300 K on the Al/Ag nanoparticles embedded in the PMMA layer/indium-tin-oxide devices exhibit a current bistability with an ON/OFF ratio of
Quantum transport modeling of defected graphene nanoribbons
We study backscattering phenomena during conduction for graphene nanoribbons of μm lengths, from single vacancy scatterers up to finite defect concentrations. Using ab initio calibrated Hamiltonian models we highlight the importance of confinement and geometry on the shaping of the local density of states around the defects that can lead to important alterations on the transport process, giving rise to impuritylike conduction gaps in the conductance distribution. Within a statistical analysis of finite defect concentration we show that conductance degradation can become very important.
