Title: Resistive switching properties in CdZnTe films

Abstract

The ternary II–VI compound semiconductor cadmium zinc telluride (CdZnTe) has bi-stable conduction characteristics. In this letter, CdZnTe films are grown on indium tin oxide (ITO) substrates by radio frequency magnetron sputtering. The current-voltage characteristics show that there is resistive switching in a structure consisting of an 800-nm-thick CdZnTe film, an Au Schottky contact, and an ITO bottom electrode. The electroresistance in Au/CdZnTe/ITO may be related to the polarization of the CdZnTe film and the Schottky contact.
