Organic electronic and polymer memory devices offer the potential for cheap, simple memories that could compete across the whole spectrum of digital memories, from low cost, low performance applications, up to universal memories capable of replacing all current market leading technologies, such as random access memories, hard disk drives and Flash memories. Organic memory devices (OMDs) are simple, two terminal metal-insulator-metal (MIM) bi-stable devices that can exist in two distinct conductivity states. Each state is induced by applying different voltages across the device terminals. Here we review the developing methods for the integration and interfacing of molecular components that have been found for the performing information functions (memory, processing) on a molecular scale.
