Preparation and Characteristics of Flexible Nanorod-Based Photodetectors
Abstract:Metal-semiconductor-metal ultraviolet photodetectors on flexible polyethylene terephthalate (PET) substrates with ZnO nanorods have been characterized. The photoresponsity and UV-to-visible rejection ratio of the ZnO nanorod-based sensor were 0.0409 A/W and 282.59, respectively. Compared to a traditional ZnO photodetector without nanorods, the fabricated novel photodetector showed much higher photoresponsity which could strongly depend on oxygen adsorption and desorption in the presence of trap states at the nanorods surface. It can be attributed to high surface-to-volume ratio of ZnO nanorods.
