:Experimental characterization of ferroelectric based non-volatile memory devicesAbstract:
Ferroelectric materials can show permanent polarization even in the absence of a forcing electric field, this phenomenon can be exploited for non-volatile memories.
During the work experimental measurements will be performed on Ferroelectric Tunneling Junction (FTJ) devices and Ferroelectric Capacitors (FC) in order to characterize their performances in term of switching dynamics, data retention and reliability. Measurements results will be the base for the validation of analytical modelling of the physical processes involved.
