    A non-volatile memory element based on organic/inorganic nanocomposites is presented. The device can be operated in ambient conditions, showing high retention time and long-term life time. The formation/rupture of metallic filaments in the organic matrix is investigated by HR-XPS and ToF-SIMS analysis, and is demonstrated to be the driving mechanism for the resistive switching.
