Paper Abstract

Understanding thin film oxidation is fundamental from a scientific point of view. There are many processes that benefit from oxidation, such as passivation or memristor formation. On the other hand, oxidation can be a burden, such as in metallic interconnects. Oxidation thermodynamics have been studied for a long time; however, oxidation kinetics in different time scales, oxidation environments and temperatures have yet to be fully understood. In this work we use a combination of simulations and nanoscale characterization to further investigate and understand oxidation kinetics. Results include self-aligned electroforming of selector/memristor structures and ways to control copper oxide formation.
