Memory Technology is a key component of the modern information society. Its value will be further enhanced in the future big-data era. As a kind of matter carrier for recording data or information, semiconductor nanomaterials increasingly play important roles in memory devices due to their potential advantage of device miniature and high-density integration. The electrical/optical/spin/magnetic/chemical/ferroelectric properties, band structure, atomic structure, defect, and various phases of semiconductor nanomaterials together decide the ways of efficient data encoding, which includes volatile and nonvolatile memories. Their microscopic working mechanism, response to external stimuli, characterization/analysis, growth, optimization/design, and device fabrication of the semiconductor nanomaterials are closely related to memory performances including data retention, power consumption, signal contrast, encoding speed, write/erase cycling and so on. Moreover, some fast-developing memory-related technologies, for example, brain-like or neuromorphic computing devices, also depend on semiconductor nanomaterials.
