Resistive switching (RS) refers to the reversible change of the resistance of a nanometer sized media by the application of electrical pulses. Many physical processes matching this concept have been identified, ranging from the controlled re-localization of ion vacancies in oxide matrices to the electric-field-induced metal-to-insulator transition in Mott insulators. 

Devices based on this phenomena are making huge impact in two applicative fields, nonvolatile electronic memory devices and neuromorphic systems. Indeed, resistive random-access memories (ReRAM) is becoming one of the promising candidates to substitute for the standard memory technologies in the near future. Regarding neuromorphic engineering, RS devices might be a very efficient building block when it comes to the implementation of spiking neural networks. 

In this talk, we will review the basic concepts behind RS and introduce our RS devices. Two of our applicative research lines will be presented as well.
