Mixed ionic-electronic conductors (MIECs) such as the (La,Sr)(Co,Fe)O 3-d perovskite family are well described in their charge transport through their high temperature applications, i.e., as solid-oxide fuel cell electrodes (600-1000 °C). In this study, the current-voltage (I-V) profiles of these well-known MIEC perovskites are studied between room temperature and 150 °C under bias of ±15 V for potential applications in resistance random access memories. The impact of the metal-oxide interface on the I-V characteristics ranging from ohmic to non-linear hysteretic is discussed for metals of varying work functions and redox potentials, as well as changes in metal electrode distances and areas.
