We demonstrate the feasibility of an approach to nonvolatile memory (NVM) that exploits charge trapping at deep-energy levels formed in Al₂O₃ by metal doping. Our calculations show that V and Nb are expected to form such deep energy levels in the band gap of Al₂O₃. To demonstrate the effectiveness of this approach these metal ions were ion-implanted into test structures based on an Al₂O₃ trapping layer. Several structural analysis techniques and photocurrent spectroscopy show that the doped...[Show more]
