Layered materials like transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDs) and hexagonal boron nitride (h-BN) have been recently demonstrated as the switching layers in resistive random access memory (RRAM) devices [1]-[3], but their switching mechanisms are not yet well understood. In this work, we show resistive memory switching in MoTe2 devices and investigate the thermal origins of their switching behavior using scanning thermal microscopy (SThM). We observe localized heating due to the formation of a conductive plug, which is correlated with electro-thermal simulations, providing the first thermal insights into the operation of such RRAM devices.
