Innovative Multilayer OTS Selectors for Performance Tuning and Improved Reliability

Abstract : In this paper, we investigate an innovative Ovonic Threshold Switching Selector (OTS) based on Multilayer structure (ML). Thanks to physico-chemical analysis and electrical characterization we show how MLs properties and structure can be tuned thanks to the engineering of each individual layer stoichiometry, thickness and interfaces. Ge/N-doped SbSe-based MLs OTS are analyzed by FTIR and Raman spectroscopy revealing the structural features present in the as-deposited materials and the strong interaction among individual layers at interfaces. We demonstrate the improved variability control of electrical parameters wrt standard OTS achieved by co-sputtering technique, and the high endurance capability of MLs OTS up to more than 2·10$^9$ cycles with stable nA leakage current. Moreover, we show how Ge-N bonds play a huge role on OTS thermal stability at 400° C and how they can be tuned more easily in ML OTS. These developments pave the way towards a new class of OTS materials and their engineering, ensuring high temperature stability and best tuning of electrical performances.
