In this letter, we successfully produced resistive switching behaviors by nickel doped into silicon oxide at room temperature. The nickel element was doped into silicon oxide, which is a useful dielectric material in integrated circuit (IC) industries by cosputtering technology. Based on the proposed method, satisfactory reliability of the resistance switching device can be demonstrated by endurance and retention evaluation. We believe that the silicon oxide doped with nickel at room temperature is a promising method for resistive random access memory nonvolatile memory applications due to its compatibility with the IC processes.
