1. A method of producing an electronic device for data storage comprising the steps of:
producing a plurality of metal nanoparticles, wherein the plurality of metal nanoparticles each include a metal core and a metal shell, said step of producing a plurality of metal nanoparticles including the steps of:
producing the metal cores of the metal nanoparticles; and
producing the metal shells arranged to encapsulate the metal cores of the metal nanoparticles; and
depositing a memory storage element on a substrate of the electronic device; wherein the memory storage element includes the plurality of metal nanoparticles; wherein the memory storage element is arranged to represent two or more memory states of the electronic device; and wherein the step of depositing the memory storage element on the substrate of the electronic device comprises the steps of:
producing a monolayer of the plurality of metal nanoparticles; and thereafter
transferring the produced monolayer the substrate.
