Both polymers (PVK-AZO-NO2 and PVK-AZO-2CN) exhibit write-once read-many-times (WORM) type memory effects, with low switching threshold voltages below -2 V and high ON/OFF current ratios of ∼10 5-106. The observed electrical bistability in both polymers can be attributed to the field-induced charge transfer interaction between carbazole electron donor and terminal electron acceptor (-NO2 or -CN) moieties, and subsequent charge trapping at the intermediate azobenzene chromophores. The proposed switching mechanism is supported by the changes in the UV-visible absorption spectra of the polymer film upon transition from the OFF to the ON state. © 2011 The Royal Society of Chemistry.||Source Title:||Journal of Materials Chemistry||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/82248||ISSN:||09599428||DOI:||10.1039/c0jm04344c|
