Abstract

The ever-increasing flow of information requires new approaches for high-density data storage (HDDS). Here, we present a novel solution that incorporates the easily accessible polymer poly(3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene) (PEDOT) with multistate memory. The electrical addressable polymer is able to store up to five different memory states, which are stable up to 20 min. The observed memory states are generated by the optical output signature of the PEDOT deposited on indium tin oxide (ITO) coated glass, upon applying specific electrical inputs. Moreover, the demonstrated platforms can be represented by a general logic circuit, which allows the construction of multistate memory, such as flip-flops and flip-flap-flop logic circuits.
