Bulakhe, Insik In, P.S. Patil, T.D. DongaleAbstractThe memristive devices are getting a lot of interest in recent years due to its applications in the field of resistive memory and brain-inspired computing. In the present work, we have developed a ZnO memristive device using the reflux method. We have demonstrated non-volatile memory properties and mimicked the basic synaptic properties of using Al/ZnO/FTO thin film device. The s...
