This study reports on a robust physical mechanism governing a field-induced volume resistive switching in metallic La1−xSrxMnO3−y perovskites, displaying a metal insulator transition. We show that oxygen migration can be smartly engineered by introducing a CeO2−x capping layer, acting as oxygen reservoir, which is used to validate the phenomenon as a proof-of-concept three-terminal (3-T) device.
