In this chapter recent developments of transistor memory devices are reviewed, with particular focus on non-volatile organic-based transistor memory. After a brief introduction to the operation principles of memory devices, selected examples are introduced according to the mechanism through which the electric bistability is generated. These include the use of ferroelectrics, polymer electrets, polymer–molecular hybrids, molecular films, self-assembled monolayers, as well as nanoparticles incorporated at various locations in thin film transistors. A general perspective is provided in the conclusion.
