In this talk, we will review the use of thin films of organic polyradicals – organic polymers with one unpaired electron per monomer  – for memory devices and other applications. Although memory devices based on radical polymers have been often proposed, their stability was frequently limited to a few writing cycles, despite the excellent quality of the active layer.

This talk reflects on recent research in progress with Andras Gilyen. Over the years, there have been a number of papers dealing with quantum algorithms testing some properties of classical probability distributions. Our goal is to understand what is the right way for quantum algorithms to access the distribution. There is a number of possible models, and we analyse their mutual strength.
