Electric current-induced voltage oscillation at 500-560 kHz was observed in the current-voltage curves of nanoscopic size (∼0.9 nm) tunnel junctions arranged in a low-capacitance (∼1 aF), multiple-junction configuration of (Ni42 Nb28 Zr30) 100-x Hx (5.2≤x≤15.2) glassy alloys in the temperature range of 205-6 K. This behavior appeared to be derived from Coulomb oscillation resulting from the tunneling of individual protons charging and discharging the vacancy capacitance of Zr-H - H-Zr atomic bond arrays among Zr-tetrahedral clusters, where is the vacancy barrier, termed the free volume, in the glassy alloys.
