Abstract Memristive nanoelectronic devices share many of the properties of resistors, as well as the same unit of measure (ohm). However, in contrast to ordinary resistors in which the unit of resistance is permanently fixed, memristance may be programmed or switched to different states based on the history of the voltage applied to the memristance nanomaterial. This project was a unique collaboration between researchers at the College of Nanoscale Science & Engineering (Univ. at Albany) and AFRL/RI to explore the synthesis, nanofabrication, and characterization of memristive devices using nanoscale materials, such as nanoparticles and nanoparticle matrices. The project resulted in the fabrication of single nanoparticle devices which were characterized via conductive atomic force microscopy (cAFM) and electrically switchable nanoparticle-doped films.
