Part of the Institute for Amorphous Studies Series book series (IASS)

Abstract

The electronic nature of Ovonic threshold switching (1) has been definitively established.(2–8) Electronic action is also the initiating factor in our memories and the electronic concept has proven useful in establishing information encoding in an imaging manner as well.(9–22) It is now appropriate to elucidate the physical and chemical basis for such action.
