Informational technology development is approaching a crucial bottleneck due to the limitation of Von-Neumann architecture, for data storage and logic functions. Meanwhile, nowadays the DRAM and NAND flash memories have shown drawbacks such as data volatility, limitations of speed and endurance problem. Newly emerging non-volatile memories (NVMs) have become prominent candidates for the upcoming era of artificial intelligence and neuromorphic computing.
One promising type of NVMs is the ferroelectric tunnel junction (FTJ), which has a simple capacitor structure, consisting of an ultrathin ferroelectric layer, allowing tunnel transport, sandwiched between two metallic electrodes.The switching of ferroelectric polarization between two directions (PDOWN and PUP) modulates the barrier properties at the interface with electrodes, which consequent changes of conductance, i.e. the tunnel electroresistance (ER) effect.
