Hysteretic resistive switching behavior in a silver selenide (Ag 2Se) nanowire, which had a diameter of about 200 nm and a length of about 10 μm, was studied using scanning probe microscopy. Electrical current measurements were carried out in a range from 0 to -10 V and in temperatures below and above the phase transition of Ag2Se. ON/OFF switching times were measured with pulsed voltages. They displayed different characteristics at low and high temperatures. The results confirm that Ag2Se nanowires have applications in nanoscale switching devices.
