Suppressing the operating current in resistive memory devices is an effective strategy to minimize their power consumption. Herein, we present an intrinsic low-current memory based on two-dimensional (2D) hybrid heterostructures consisting of partly reduced graphene oxide (p-rGO) and conjugated microporous polymer (CMP) with the merits of being solution-processed, large-scale, and well patterned. The device with the heterostructure of p-rGO/CMP sandwiched between highly reduced graphene oxide (h-rGO) and aluminum electrodes exhibited rewritable and nonvolatile memory behavior with an ultralow operating current (∼1 μA) and efficient power consumption (∼2.9 μW). Moreover, the on/off current ratio is over 103, and the retention time is up to 8 × 103 s, indicating the low misreading rate and high stability of data storage. So far, the value of power is about 10 times lower than those of the previous GO-based memories. The bilayer architecture provides a promising approach to construct intrinsic low-power resistive memory devices.
