  • Taking advantage of the high absorption coefficient, excellent photoelectric properties, and high carrier mobility of Single-Walled Carbon NanoTubes (SWCNTs), high-performance, transparent, all-carbon Field-Effect Transistor (FET) photodetector has been constructed with a high transmittance more than 80% in the visible light band, in which semiconducting SWCNT (sc-SWCNT)/fullerene (C60) heterojunctions as the channel materials, patterned metallic SWCNT film as source/drain electrodes, graphene oxide (GO) as the dielectric layer, and Indium Tin Oxide (ITO) as a transparent gate electrode. The electrical test results show that the photodetector exhibits a strong gate-tunable characteristics, and achieves a broadband spectral response from 405 to 1064 nm in the visible-near infrared spectral region. Under 940 nm illumination with a light density of 5 mW/cm2, the maximum photoelectric responsivity of 18.55 A/W and a specific detectivity of 5.35×1011 Jones can be achieved.
