Researchers develop perovskite/organic tandem device for dual light detection and emission functions

Researchers at China's Nanjing University of Science and Technology, Hong Kong Baptist University and Southwest University have introduced a tandem device that incorporates an organic photodiode (OPD) and a perovskite light emitting diode (PeLED), enabling simultaneous light detection and emission in one compact device, prepared by all-solution fabrication process. 

The team found that precise control of interfacial properties plays a critical role in establishing the all-solution processed OPD/PeLED multi-layered dual-function device which is critical for charge transport, recombination, and generation. 


The integrated structure allows for light detection and emission function selectively by controlling the polarity of the external bias. 

The optoelectronic performance of the dual-function tandem device is comparable to that of the discrete control OPD and PeLED, i.e., the tandem device achieves a responsivity of 94 mA/W at 850 nm under −1 V and a luminance result of 1319 cd/m2 at 516 nm under 7 V, which is comparable to 101 mA/W and 1983 cd/m2 for the control OPD and PeLED operated under the same conditions. 

This work demonstrates the promising properties of the monolithically integrated dual-functional device and its potential for application in health monitoring and wearable electronic devices.
