The current-voltage (I-V) characteristics and electrical switching behaviours of As40Te60-xInx (5 less than or equal tox less than or equal to 16.5) As35Te65-xInx (10 less than or equal tox less than or equal to 19) and As30Te70-xInx (12.5 less than or equal to x less than or equal to 21.5) have been studied over wide ranges of indium concentrations x and average coordination numbers <r >. All the glasses studied show a threshold switching behaviour. Further, the composition dependence of the switching field is found to exhibit a distinct change in slope at <r > = 2.65 and a local minimum at around <r > = 2.69. These results indicate the possibility that rigidity percolation occurs at around <r > = 2.65 and chemical threshold around <r > = 2.69.
