Abstract

In this paper, method combined vapor transportation with in-situ chemical reaction is employed to synthesize CuTCNQ nanowires. The typical diameter of nanowires is 50–500 nm with high uniformity. The electrical switching characteristics of single nanowire are observed. The ON-OFF resistance ratio for switching reaches 10. The investigation reveals a linear relationship between the switching threshold and the spacing between the two electrodes. The temporal response of the switching process is 30 ns and the switch exhibits good reproducibility. The collapse of the nanowire under the condition of current surge is also discussed. It is believed that the CuTCNQ nanowire could be promising for applications in nanoelectronics.
