Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterAcademicpeer-review


Macromolecular materials, such as polymers, can be used to make electronic memory cells. This chapter focuses on data storage based on resistive switching in two terminal diodes incorporating macromolecules. Elementary physical chemistry of macromolecules relevant for the memory function is briefly discussed. Various approaches to realize macromolecular memory cell are discussed in relation to the chemical structure of the polymer and recent developments are reviewed.
