Resistance switching in nanogap electrodes, the electrodes of which are made of platinum and gold, was investigated in air. The off-to-on transition in air was achieved by voltage sweeping enforced with a current-compliance operation that suppresses the overcurrent just after the change in tunneling resistance. It was also found that the applied voltages for the on-to-off resistance transition could be suppressed in air. These results imply that resistance switching is caused in air, and moreover, that the switching voltage is affected by the surroundings. © 2012 American Institute of Physics.
