Solution-Processed Flexible Broadband Photodetectors with Solution-Processed Transparent Polymeric Electrode

Journal Article (Journal Article)

Room-temperature solution-processed flexible photodetectors with spectral response from 300 to 2600 nm are reported. Solution-processed polymeric thin film with transparency ranging from 300 to 7000 nm and superior electrical conductivity as the transparent electrode is reported. Solution-processed flexible broadband photodetectors with a “vertical” device structure incorporating a perovskite/PbSe quantum dot bilayer thin film based on the above solution-processed transparent polymeric electrode are demonstrated. The utilization of perovskite/PbSe quantum dot bilayer thin film as the photoactive layer extends spectral response to infrared region and boosts photocurrent densities in both visible and infrared regions through the trap-assisted photomultiplication effect. Operated at room temperature and under an external bias of -1 V, the solution-processed flexible photodetectors exhibit over 230 mA W-1 responsivity, over 1011 cm Hz1/2/W photodetectivity from 300 to 2600 nm and ≈70 dB linear dynamic ranges. It is also found that the solution-processed flexible broadband photodetectors exhibit fast response time and excellent flexibility. All these results demonstrate that this work develop a facile approach to realize room-temperature operated ultrasensitive solution-processed flexible broadband photodetectors with “vertical” device structure through solution-processed transparent polymeric electrode.
