Bioengineered protein-based nanodevices with tunable and reproducible memristive performance are fabricated by combining the unique high loading capacity of Archaeoglobus fulgidus ferritin with OWL-generated nanogaps. By tuning the iron amount inside ferritin, the ON/OFF ratio of conductance switching can be modulated accordingly. Higher molecular loading exhibits better memristive performance owing to the higher electrochemical activity of the ferric complex core.
