Bulk, Se-rich () glasses show anomalous electrical switching behaviour which is attributed to difference in the thermal conductivities of inclusions and GeSe base glass. The present results also show that there is a sharp drop in switching voltage with silver addition, which is due to the higher metallicity of silver and the presence of ions. Further, the leveling of threshold voltage () around , is associated with the percolation of phase in the Ge-Se matrix.
