dc.description.abstractNano-composite polymer memory devices are fabricated by depositing a blend (an admixture of organic polymer, small organic molecules and nanoparticles) between two metal electrodes. These devices show two electrical conductance states (“1” and “0”) when voltage is applied, thus rendering the structures suitable for data retention. These two states can be viewed as the realisation of non-volatile memory. Nano-composite polymer memory devices comprising of a blend of a polymer and small molecules and/or nanoparticles are investigated. This study is aimed at further understanding the electrical bistability observed in such devices. This work also investigates if an electrical charge can be transferred to gold nano-particles and, between small molecule complexes.en
