The goal of this project is to build a compact, transparent, polymeric resistive random access memory (RRAM) on a flexible substrate. This novel device is based on the concept of resistive switching characteristics which have already been demonstrated in many materials. The typical structure of this device is a sandwich of two metal layers separated by a functionalized insulator. This technology will enable the development of low-cost, highly reliable, high density,polymer-based nonvolatile memory devices which can be implemented in various transparent and flexible electronic systems.
