Plasmonic light trapping leads to responsivity increase in colloidal quantum dot photodetectors

Pelayo García de Arquer, F.; Beck, Fiona J.; Bernechea, María; Konstantatos, Gerasimos


We report broadband responsivity enhancement in PbS colloidal quantum dot (CQDs) photoconductive photodetectors due to absorption increase offered by a plasmonic scattering layer of Ag metal nanoparticles. Responsivity enhancements are observed in the near infrared with a maximum 2.4-fold increase near the absorption band edge of 1 lm for 400 nm thick devices. Additionally, we study the effect of the mode structure on the efficiency of light trapping provided by random nanoparticle...[Show more]
