Abstract: We report on the observation of a non-volatile, reversible switching of the magnetic moment in Mn-doped ZnO thin films. The system is a typical oxide memristor based on an oxygen-deficient semiconductor oxide. In the present study, the oxide semiconductor is ferromagnetic at room temperature. We found that the bistable switching of the resistive state was accompanied by a bistable switching of the magnetic moment at room temperature. Our results support the hypothesis that ferromagnetism in Mn-doped ZnO is mediated by oxygen-vacancies.
