Resistive switching in nano particle incorporated polymer and bio degradable films is now a fast growing field as it has memory applications. Further the conduction mechanisms involved that lead to switching are of great interest.
Giving a brief summary of the status of different emerging memory sytems, I shall describe our work and recent results on resistive switching in :
1. PMMA-Al doped ZnO nano particles,
2. PVA-reduced graphene oxide
3. Gelatin-Graphene Oxide,
4. Gelatin-CdTe quantum dots and
5. Gelatin-Silver nano particles.
Through systematic I-V characterization, the conduction mechanisms in these systems have been established.
