Picture of testing probesIn the preparation of metal-insulator-metal (MIM) layer stacks for application in resistive memories, the roughness and the composition of the interfaces in the layer stack play an essential role for the electrical function and are therefore subject of investigation at IESM. In addition to MIM layer stacks, small molecules for memory or switching applications are also investigated (molecular electronics). Here, these molecules are deposited on gold electrodes in the form of a self-assembled monolayer, contacted by the tip of an atomic force microscope (AFM) and their conductivities and switching properties are measured (c-AFM).
