  • Abstract: Design and measurements of molecular wires, switches, and memories offer an increased device capability with reduced elements. We report: Measurements on through‐bond electronic transport properties of nanoscale metal‐1,4‐phenylene diisocyanide‐metal junctions are reported, where nonohmic thermionic emission is the dominant process, with isocyanide‐Pd showing the lowest thermionic barrier of 0.22 eV; robust and large reversible switching behavior in an electronic device that utilizes… CONTINUE READING
