The resistive switching behaviour observed in microscale memristors based on laser ablated ZnO and VO2 is reported. A comparison between the two materials is reported against an active device size. The results show that devices up to 300 × 300 μm2 exhibit a memristive behaviour regardless of the device size, and 100 × 100 μm2 ZnO-based memristors have the best resistance off/on ratio.
