Abstract : The patent concerns at least two metal oxide switch devices sandwiched togehter with each device consisting of polycrystalline refractory transition metal oxide such as NbO2 formed on a conducting refractory substrate such as single crystal NbO. The polycrystalline layers on opposing outer faces of the sandwich are removed and electrical contacts made thereto. The mutually contiguous polycrystalline surfaces form an active interface where switching is adapted to take place. (Author)
