Molecular memories tough it out

Abstract:
Researchers at the University of California, Riverside, US, and North Carolina State University, US, claim to have shown, for the first time, that an organic molecule can compete with semiconductors in terms of stability. The finding could have implications for the development of hybrid molecular-semiconductor devices. “We have demonstrated that porphyrin, a particular type of organic molecule that we have previously shown might be useful for information storage, can undergo trillions of write/read cycles and is extremely stable under harsh conditions,” David Bocian of the University of California, Riverside told nanotechweb.org.
