Abstract : A three dimensional memory which is comprised of a plurality of a stacked memory planes, each of which includes at least a continuous transparent photovoltaic-ferroelectric layer sandwiched between two continuous plane transparent electrodes. In one embodiment, the memory planes are comprised of only the photovoltaic-ferroelectric layer sandwiched between the two electrodes, and in another embodiment the ferroelectric layer and a continuous transparent photoconductive layer are sandwiched between the two electrodes.
