A new type of organic visible-blind UV-PDs is demonstrated by utilizing phosphorescent material Ir(III)bis[(4,6-difluorophenyl)-pyridinato-N, ] picolinate (FIrpic) as the electron donor and [6,6]-phenyl-C-61-butyricacidmethylester (PCBM) as the electron accepter, respectively. The peak responsivity of the organic UV-PDs is as high as , corresponding to an external quantum efficiency of about 48%, under 365 nm UV light with an intensity of . The distinct photoluminescence quenching of FIrpic is obtained by doping PCBM. The organic UV-PDs provide visible-blind performance with the strong photocurrent response in the UV-A region, the rise and fall times of less than one second, and linear response within the incident light-intensity range from 0.018 to .
