Flexible Crossbar-Structured Resistive Memory Arrays on Plastic Substrates via Inorganic-Based Laser Lift-Off

Flexible electronics have been extensively investigated in hopes of realizing system-on-plastic (SoP) applications as the nextgeneration technology in various areas, ranging from consumer electronics to bio-integrated medical devices. Flexible memory in particular is regarded as an integral component for SoP applications because of its crucial role in data processing, storage, and communications with external devices. A number of research groups have explored a variety of organicbased flexible memories including fl ash memory, ferroelectric memory, and resistive memory, directly fabricated at relatively low temperature on flexible substrates using spin-coating, roll-to-roll, and other processes.
