Ultrasensitive and Fast All-Inorganic Perovskite-Based Photodetector via Fast Carrier Diffusion

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Low trap-state density, high carrier mobility, and efficient charge carrier collection are key parameters for photodetectors with high sensitivity and fast response time. This study demonstrates a simple solution growth method to prepare CsPbBr3 microcrystals (MCs) with low trap-state density. Time-dependent photoluminescence study with one-photon excitation (OPE) and two-photon excitation (TPE) indicates that CsPbBr3 MCs exhibit fast carrier diffusion with carrier mobility over 100 cm2 V-1 S-1. Furthermore, CsPbBr3 MC-based photodetectors with high charge carriers' collection efficiency are fabricated. Such photodetectors show ultrahigh responsivity (R) up to 6 × 104 A W-1 with OPE and high R up to 6 A W-1 with TPE. The R for OPE is over one order of magnitude higher (the R for TPE is three orders of magnitude higher) than that of previously reported all-inorganic perovskite-based photodetectors. Moreover, the photodetectors exhibit fast response time of ≈1 ms, which corresponds to a gain ≈105 and a gain- bandwidth product of 108 Hz for OPE (a gain ≈103 and a gain-bandwidth product of 106 Hz for TPE).
