High-Responsivity Graphene Infrared Photodetectors (Graphene & 2D Materials Europe 2019)

Dr Shinpei Ogawa,
Mitsubishi Electric

Presentation Summary

High-responsivity graphene photodetectors have been developed that operate in the middle-wavelength infrared (MWIR) or long-wavelength infrared (LWIR) region by exploiting the photogating effect. These photodetectors utilize graphene-based field-effect transistors combined with a photosensitizer, with the graphene being fabricated using chemical vapor deposition. High responsivity that significantly exceeds that of conventional IR photodetectors was achieved in both the MWIR and LWIR regions due to the photogating effect.
