High-Temperature Operating Non-volatile Memory of Printable Single-Wall Carbon Nanotubes Self-Assembled with a Conjugate Block Copolymer

Printable non-volatile polymer memories are fabricated with solution-processed nanocomposite films of poly(styrene-block-paraphenylene) (PS-b-PPP) and single-wall carbon nanotubes (SWNTs). The devices show stable data retention at high temperatures of up to 100 °C without significant performance degradation due to the strong, non-destructive, and isomorphic π–π interactions between the SWNTs and PPP block.
