Vaidhyanathan, B and Asokan, S and Rao, KJ (1995) Near ideal electrical switching in fast ion conducting glasses: Evidence for an electronic process with chemical origin. In: Bulletin of Materials Science, 18 (3). pp. 301-307.
Bulk Agl based fast ion conducting (FIC) glasses have been prepared by a novel microwave technique. Electrical switching characteristics of these glasses have been investigated for the first time. It has been found that Agl based FIC glasses exhibit a currentcontrolled high speed memory electrical switching behaviour. SEM, EDAX and ESR investigations have been performed on the virgin and switched samples to understand the nature of the conducting state. A chemical model is proposed to explain the switching behaviour of these glasses, which is consistent with the observed results.
