A discussion about the performance of a nanometer-scale switch that uses a copper sulfide film was presented. The nanometer-scale switch consists of a copper sulfide film, which was a chalcogenide semiconductor, sandwiched between copper and metal electrodes. It was found that these switches were advantageous for nan-volatile memory elements due to their simple structure, scalability and low voltage operations.
