Bucky shuttle memory systems were investigated by the classical molecular dynamics(MD) simulations. Energetics and operating response of the shuttle-memory-elements were examined by MD simulations of the C_(60) shuttle in the nanomemory systems under various external force fields. Single-nanopeapod type was consisting of three fullerenes encapsulated in (l0, 10) boron-nitride nanotube and filled Cu electrode. Studied systems could be applied to nonvolatile memory. MD simulation results showed that the stable bit flops could be achieved from the external force fields of 0.1 eV/Å for single-nanopeapod type.
