Conducting research for a changing society: This is what drives us at Forschungs­zentrum Jülich. As a member of the Helmholtz Association, we aim to tackle the grand societal challenges of our timeconduct researchthe possibilities of a digitized society, a climate-friendly energy system,a resource-efficient economy. Work together with around 7,100 employees in one of Europe’s biggest research centreshelp us to shape change! Memristive devices constitute an emerging memory technology that can be programmed in different resistance states. They cannot only be used as binary memory, but also for securityneuromorphic applications. The Institute of Electronic Materials (IWE2) of the RWTH Aachen Universitythe Peter Grünberg Institute – Electronic Materials (PGI-7) – have a unique radio frequency (RF) setup, with which the writing times of memory devices can be measured at time scales down to 50 ps, which is the fastest writing time reported for memristive devices. Now, this setup will be used to test neuromorphic applications on memristive devices in the GHz regime. We are offering a Master Thesis – Characterization of Irreversible Processes in Valence Change Memory (VCM) Cells on a Sub-Nanosecond Time ScaleThe use of bipolar memory devices to achieve synaptic connectivity in neural networks is highly dependent on the ability of the devices to perform analog conductance modulation using electrical stimuli in the form of identical voltage pulses. Typically, the filamentary components of the valence change memory (VCM) type exhibit abruptswitching behaviorgradual RESET switching behavior. Therefore, obtaining an analog modulation of the conductance duringand RESET is a challenge. In order to achieve analog writing modes with ultra-short pulses, using a bias tee, we can simultaneously apply a series of ultra-short pulses (ps)a continuous read voltage. So one can measure the resistance changes while applying pulse trains. The aim of the thesis is to

Characterize irreversible processes (such as ion migration), investigate analogue modes of operation
Realize STP / LTP by gradual stepwise switching events in resistive switching valence change memory (VCM)
Track the change of resistance upon application of ultra-short pulses in order to generate a linear relationshipthe change in resistancethe number of pulses
Electrical characterization on our ultra-fast RF setup, using bias tee, SMU, pulse generator,oscilloscope
Control measurementsevaluate data via Python code
