Conductance histogram of 100 breaking curves: By Laetitia Soukiassian

This histogram was acquired with a digital oscilloscope interfaced with a computer. It is a cumulative histogram of 100 current vs time curves taken as the junction breaks. It exhibits 3 peaks near 1, 2 and 3 G0 which are evidence that support the quantization of the conductance in Au break junctions.
