We have fabricated an organic deep ultraviolet photodetector (PD) using PEDOT:PSS (PH 1000) as a transparent anode. NPB and PBD were employed as electron donor and acceptor, respectively. The PD exhibits a dark current of 0.0829 μA / cm 2 and a photocurrent of 85.3 μA / cm 2 at 12 V under 280 nm light illumination with an intensity of 0.488 mW / cm 2 . A high response at 248 370 nm with its peak of 0.18 A / W at 280 nm and a detectivity of 1.1 × 10 12 cm Hz 1 / 2 W 1 were achieved. The more detailed mechanism of harvesting high performance and the dependence of photocurrent density on illumination intensity are also discussed.
