Charge trapping models of resistance switching in organic bistable devices with embedded nanoparticles
We discuss three different models of switching between the high conductivity and low conductivity state in organic bistable devices (OBD) with embedded nanoparticles. All models assume the same basic mechanism: charge trapping and de-trapping in metal nanoparticles. We show trapped charges can both induce an increase or a reduction of the total current depending on device configurations. The influence of energy disorder is investigated.
