Abstract

Nanoparticle based polymer memory devices (PMDs) are a promising technology that could replace conventional silicon based electronic memory, offering fast operating speeds, simple device structures and low costs. Here we report on the current state of the nanoparticle PMDs and review some of the problems that are still present in the field. We also present new data regarding the charging of gold nanoparticles in metal-insulator-semiconductor capacitors, showing that nanoparticle charging is possible under the application of an electric field with a trapped charge density due to the nanoparticles of 3.3x1012 cm-2.
