Title: Anatomy of Ag/Hafnia-Based Selectors with 10 10 Nonlinearity

We developed a novel Ag/oxide-based threshold switching device with attractive features including ≈10 10 nonlinearity. Furthermore, in a high-resolution transmission electron microscopic analysis of the nanoscale crosspoint device it is suggested that elongation of an Ag nanoparticle under voltage bias followed by spontaneous reformation of a more spherical shape after power off, is responsible for the observed threshold switching.
