INTRODUCTION
Its simply a plastic, often used as an

antistatic coating to keep fluff from clinging to computer screens.


The device sandwiches a blob of a

conducting polymer called PEDOT and a silicon diode between two perpendicular wires

CURRENT TECHNOLOGIES

What is PLASTIC MEMORY ?


Material isnt smaller transistors or an exotic material

,its simple plastic material An architecture for a write-once read-many-times (WORM) memory It uses a Polymer called PEDOT and so it is also known as POLYMER BASED MEMORY.

CONSTITUENTS OF PLASTIC MEMORY


PEDOT-PSS polymer film
Silicon P-I-N Diode Anode : Indium/Tin Oxide

Cathode : Aluminium
Substrate : Stainless Steel Metal Contacts : Au

ARCHITECTURE

THE REASON BEHIND


Anode: ITO(80% faster transfer rate ) Cathode: Aluminum coated on stainless steel

substrate(light-weight with high tensile strength & a ready source of electrons.) Silicon P-I-N Diode(has high forbidden energy gap in unbiased mode, conducts freely when forward biased), Flexible Stainless Steel Substrate(high elasticity)

FUNCTIONING
Polymers Behaviour on passing of current PEDOT has holes as majority carriers initially the electrons are injected into the film creating an electric field which makes it conducting due to large voltage application, all holes are combined and PEDOT film becomes non-conducting Current is passed through the polymer it changes

from conductive to nonconductive


Conductive as logic 1 and non conductive as logic 0

WHAT IS PEDOT
PEDOT is a two-

component Electro chromic polymer of:


PolyethyleneDioxyThiop

hene (PEDT) Polystyrene sulphonic acid (PSS)

WEAKNESS
The biggest weakness as of now is the fact that this is a

WORM device, i.e.


Write Once Read Many

Once it is written it can never be written on again,

which is a major drawback

FUTURE SCOPE
pack 1GB of information into one cubic

centimeter. to create rewritable memory from the substances. database maintenance could be simplified. fast enough to store video memories would be like use-and-throw pens

CONCLUSION
PLASTIC MEMORY technology is surely a better and viable option than the present storage media in terms of storage, economics and ease of use.
