In this study, we investigate the internal mechanics for a two-state memory device,comprising a charged metallofullerene which is located inside a closed carbon nanotube.Assuming the Lennard-Jones interaction energy and the continuum approximation, the metallofullerenehas two symmetrically placed equal minimum energy positions. On one side theencapsulated metallofullerene represents the zero information state and by applying an externalelectrical field, the metallofullerene can be made to overcome the energy barrier of thenanotube, and pass from one end of the tube to the other, where the metallofullerene thenrepresents the one information state.
