Fully spray coated organic photodiodes
MetadataShow full item record
Solution-processed organic diodes based on bulk heterojunctlons are attractive for large area photodetectlon. We report a general approach for fully spray-coated organic photodiodes with outstanding characteristics In comparison to bladed or spin-coated devices. Despite the high surface roughness and the less defined morphology of the spray-deposited organic layers, we observe organic photodetectors with responsivities of 0.36 A/W and noise equivalent powers of 0.2 pW/H in the visible spectrum at high reverse biases of -5 V. Furthermore, we demonstrate device lifetimes beyond 1 year as well as superior yield and reproducibilties for the dark current and photocurrent densities. © 2009 American Chemical Society.
