Abstract:   (1675 Views)
Harnessing nanomaterials and the piezo-phototronic effect, we engineered a high-performance ultraviolet (UV) photodetector (PD), unveiling a new frontier in optoelectronics. This novel device seamlessly integrates zinc oxide nanorods (ZnO NRs) onto a flexible polyethylene terephthalate- indium tin oxide (PET-ITO) substrate through a straightforward and efficient hydrothermal process. This unique nanostructure design outshines its competitors, producing significantly higher current under UV illumination despite a comparable detection area. The plot thickens with the intriguing "piezo-phototronic effect," where applying pressure under UV light amplifies the current and overall device efficiency. This groundbreaking discovery paves the way for cutting-edge optoelectronic applications, where nanomaterials and the piezo-phototronic effect join forces to redefine performance.
