Conductance switching in metal/molecule/metal structures has attracted tremendous and broad interest. Understanding the switching mechanism, which remained controversial to date, will be vital for engineering nanoscale switches crucial for memory and logic applications. Here we describe a new switching mechanism revealed by a novel scanned-probe technique that images the mechano-electrical response of a Pt/stearic acid/Ti structure switch device. In each image a single switching center… CONTINUE READING
