    We investigated the 1/f noise of Pt/NiO/Pt capacitors that show unipolar resistance switching. When they were switched from the low to high resistance states, the power spectral density of the voltage fluctuation was increased by approximately five orders of magnitude. At 100 K, the relative...

    This letter presents direct evidence for the existence of the same inherently polar one-dimensional (1D), displacive disorder in BaTaO2N as occurs in paraelectric BaTiO3 as well as in doped BaTiO3 relaxor ferroelectric systems. The inherently polar, off-center and oppositely directed...
