Impact of Maxwell rigidity transitions on resistance drift phenomena in GexTe12x glasses

Abstract : Amorphous chalcogenides usually exhibit a resistivity, which increases with age following a power law q ~ t^a. Existing theories link this change in amorphous state resistivity to structural relaxation. Here, the impact of fundamental glass properties on resistance drift phenomena in amorphous GexTe1- x networks is studied. Employing Raman spectroscopy, the Maxwell rigidity transition from flexible to stressed rigid is determined to occur in the compositional range 0.2500.265) exhibit rather strong resistance drift, where the drift parameters increase steadily from a=0.13 for amorphous GeTe to a=0.29 for compositions near the stiffness threshold xc. On the other hand, the drift parameter in flexible glasses (x<0.25) decreases with decreasing Ge content x to values as low as a=0.05. These findings illustrate the strong impact of the stiffness threshold on resistance drift phenomena in chalcogenides.
