A stretchable organic digital information storage device has been developed, which potentially advances the development of future smart and digital stretchable electronic systems. The stretchable organic memory with a buckled structure was configured by a mechanically flexible and elastic graphene bottom electrode and polymer compound. The current-voltage curve of the wrinkled memory device demonstrated electrical bistability with typical write-once-read-many times memory features and a high ON/OFF current ratio (B105). Even under repetitive stretching, the stretchable organic memory exhibited excellent electrical switching functions and memory effects. We believe the first proof-of-concept presentation of the stretchable organic nonvolatile memory may accelerate the development of information storage device in various stretchable electronic applications, such as stretchable display, wearable computer and artificial skin.
