We report a write-once-read-many polymeric memory device that can be read by both electrical and optical methods. The device consists of two layers of conjugated polymer blends sandwiched between a metal electrode and a transparent electrode. One of the polymer blends functions as an ion-trapping, electrochromic layer, while the other polymer blend functions as a light-emitting electrochemical cell. Recording is facilitated by applying a negative writing voltage on the device. Reading can be performed by either probing with a low positive voltage, probing with a laser beam, or by measuring the light emission intensity from the device.
