Coplanar Asymmetrical Reduced Graphene Oxide–Titanium Electrodes for Polymer Photodetectors



original image

Narrow gaps and a “built-in” potential originating from the different work functions of reduced graphene oxide (RGO) and titanium electrodes are used to explain the improved photosensitivity of the poly(3-hexylthiophene) photodetectors with asymmetrical RGO-Ti electrodes presented here (see figure) compared to those based on symmetrical electrodes. Easy processing, high photosensitivity, high on/off ratio, and low energy consumption contribute to the promising potential of coplanar asymmetrical electrodes in the field of photoelectric devices.
