  • Publication number: 20200381644
    Abstract: An organic photodetector comprising an anode (103), a cathode (107) and a layer (105) comprising an organic electron donor and an organic electron acceptor between the anode and the cathode wherein the weight of the organic electron acceptor is less than 2 times that of the electron donor. The organic electron acceptor may be a fullerene. The organic electron donor may be a conjugated polymer.

  • Publication number: 20200111961
    Abstract: A formulation comprising an n-type organic semiconductor, a p-type organic semiconductor and a solvent mixture comprising a first solvent and a second solvent wherein the first solvent is an alkylated aromatic hydrocarbon, for example trimethylbenzene, and the second solvent is a benzene substituted with two or more substituents including at least two C1-6 alkoxy groups, for example dimethoxybenzene. The formulation may be used to form the photoactive layer (3) of a photosensitive organic electronic device, for example an organic photo detector, comprising an anode (2) a cathode (4) and the photoactive layer between the anode and the cathode.

  • Publication number: 20200028085
    Abstract: This invention relates to a formulation comprising p-type and n-type organic semiconductors and a solvent mixture comprising an aromatic hydrocarbon substituted with one or more substituents selected from alkyl and alkoxy groups and a unsubstituted or substituted benzothiazole, for example 2-methylbenzothiazole. The formulation may be used to form the photoactive layer (3) of a photosensitive organic electronic device, for example an organic photodetector, comprising an anode (2) a cathode (4) and the photoactive layer between the anode and the cathode.
