Abstract [en]

Compared with the detector devices made of inorganic semiconductors, organic photodetectors are granted with additional strengths, such as flexibility, high scalability and bio-compatibility. However, in the family of organic optoelectronic devices, the detectors that are capable of detecting photons at two or multiple specific wavelengths are still missing. Such photodetectors are highly interesting because they could identify the target objects or materials much more precisely by detecting the reflected, transmitted or emitted photons at two or multiple characteristic wavelengths. In this thesis project, the optical simulations using Transfer Matrix Method (TMM) were performed on the organic devices to achieve the dual wavelength narrowband detection in the near-infrared (NIR) spectral range of 700 ~ 1100 nm. The devices use the fact that, at the interface of the blended organic electron donating and accepting materials, the charge-transfer (CT) states with the transition energies that are lower than the optical gap of the neat materials are formed. Combined with a Fabry-Perot resonant cavity, the CT absorption can be dramatically enhanced at certain wavelengths. The simulation results show that the two detection wavelengths can be tuned independently from 650 to 1100 nm. The spectral resolution (full with at half maximum - FWHM) of the detection bands varies between 10 and 30 nm. The simulated external quantum efficiency (EQE) is ~35% at 700 nm and ~10% at 1000 nm, respectively. A possible application of such photodetectors is for example moisture detection, where two of the characteristic absorption peaks of water are located at around 750 and 960 nm. By optimizing the thickness of the two photo-absorbing layers in a tandem device structure, the detection bands can be tuned to match with those two wavelengths for simultaneous and precise detection.
