Abstract

Organic molecular memories are expected to become one of the essential key devices in the next-generation flexible digital instruments, and in this paper a novel non-volatile organic memory will be introduced. It is shown that the polarization switching characteristics in the ferroelectric films of vinylidene fluoride (VDF) oligomer and P(VDF/TrFE) copolymer change with their structural factors such as crystallinity and chain length of the materials, and the switching time becomes shorter and shorter with increasing applied electric field and reaches in the order of nano-second. Moreover, the possibilities of the application of such thin organic ferroelectric films to an infrared image sensor as well as the creation of the ultra high-density molecular memory by utilizing recent scanning probe microscopy (SPM) technique will be discussed.
