Abstract: The electrochemical switching of SrCoOx-based non-volatile memory with a thin-film-transistor structure was examined by using liquid-leakage-free electrolytes with different conductivities (sigma) as the gate insulator. We first examined leakage-free water, which is incorporated in the amorphous (a-) 12CaO center dot 7Al(2)O(3) film with a nanoporous structure (Calcium Aluminate with Nanopore), but the electrochemical oxidation/reduction of the SrCoOx layer required the application of a high gate voltage (V-g) up to 20V for a very long current-flowing-time (t) similar to 40min, primarily due to the low sigma [2.0 x 10(-8) S cm(-1) at room temperature (RT)] of leakage-free water. We then controlled the r of the leakage-free electrolyte, infiltrated in the alpha-NaxTaO(3) film with a nanopillar array structure, from 8.0 x 10(-8) S cm(-1) to 2.5 x 10(-6) S cm(-1) at RT by changing the x = 0.01-1.0. As the result, the t, required for the metallization of the SrCoOx layer under small Vg = -3V, becomes two orders of magnitude shorter with increase of the r of the a-NaxTaO3 leakage-free electrolyte. These results indicate that the ion migration in the leakage-free electrolyte is the rate-determining step for the electrochemical switching, compared to the other electrochemical process, and the high r of the leakage-free electrolyte is the key factor for the development of the non-volatile SrCoOx-based electro-magnetic phase switching device.
