Thin film field-effect phototransistors (FETs) can be developed from bandgap-tunable, solution-processed, few-layer reduced graphene oxide (FRGO) films. Large-area FRGO films with tunable bandgaps ranging from 2.2 eV to 0.5 eV can be achieved readily by solution-processing technique such as spin-coating. The electronic and optoelectronic properties of FRGO FETs are found to be closely related to their bandgap energy. The resulting phototransistor has great application potential in the field of photodetection.
