Abstract In this work, electrical characteristics of two types MOS memory structures: one that contains platinum and one that contains gold nanoparticles, embedded between two dielectric layers, a thin "tunneling" $SiO_{2}$ and a thicker $HfO_{2}$ "control" layer has been compared. The nanoparticles are formed during simple electron-gun deposition of a very small quantity of platinum or gold, at room temperature, on 3.5 nm of $SiO_{2},$ which was thermally grown on a Si wafer. The nanoparticles are formed without any annealing. Then, they are capped with a $HfO_{2}$ layer.
