A nanocomposite capable of showing a resistance-switching behavior is prepared using novel resistance-switchable fillers embedded in a polymer matrix. The filler in this study employs a conformal passivation layer of highly crystalline TiO2 on surfaces of conductive Ag nanowires to effectively gate electron flows delivered through the conductive core, resulting in an excellent resistance-switching performance. A nanocomposite prepared by controlled mixing of the resistance-switchable nanowires with a polymer matrix successfully exhibited a resistance-switching behavior of highly enhanced reliability and a resistance on/off ratio, along with flexibility due to the presence of nanowires of a tiny amount. The advantages of our approach include a simple and low-cost fabrication procedure along with sustainable performances suitable for a resistance-switching random-access-memory application.
