Memristors, memcapacitors, and meminductors represent an innovative generation of circuit elements whose properties depend on the state and history of the system. The hysteretic behavior of one of their constituent variables, is their distinctive fingerprint. This feature endows them with the ability to store and process information on the same physical location, a property that is expected to benefit many applications ranging from unconventional computing to adaptive electronics to robotics… Expand

Nonvolatile Bio-Memristor Based on Silkworm Hemolymph Proteins
Tests of 1/f noise have shown that the resistance switching characteristics of the silkworm hemolymph bio-memristor are related to the formation and breaking of conductive filaments, which result from the migration of oxygen ions and the oxidation and reduction of metal cations in the silkworms' film.

On the physical properties of memristive, memcapacitive and meminductive systems.
It is shown that ideal memristors, namely those whose state depends only on the charge that flows through them (or on the history of the voltage), are subject to very strict physical conditions and are unable to protect their memory state against the unavoidable fluctuations, and therefore are susceptible to a stochastic catastrophe.

It is argued that capacitive and inductive elements, namely, capacitors and inductors whose properties depend on the state and history of the system, are common at the nanoscale, where the dynamical properties of electrons and ions are likely to depend upon the history ofThe system, at least within certain time scales.
