In this paper, we describe an all organic molecular memory device that combines the advantages of molecular and organic electronics. We accomplish this by combining C 60 molecules with poly(4-vinylphenol) (PVP) and co-dissolving them in iso-propanol. The current-voltage measurements show a large hysteresis in the blend devices, in contrast to pure PVP devices. The thin blend films have been thoroughly characterized using Raman spectroscopy, atomic force microscopy and scanning electron microscopy.
