The photoconductivity of a methyl squarylium (MeSq) single-nanowire device shows a high light sensitivity, wavelength-dependent photoresponse, good response speed, and excellent stability and reproducibility. Nanodevices fabricated on flexible substrates (see figure) exhibit good mechanical bendability and no obvious change in performance after bending to a curvature of 0.5 cm−1.
