We have fabricated p-pentacene/n-Si organic photodiodes by thermal evaporation of pentacene films at 25 (RT), 60, and 80 °C. Our pentacene films exhibit the main absorption peak (highest occupied molecular orbital-lowest unoccupied molecular orbital gap transition) at 1.82 eV and photoelectric effects were clearly observed from our p-pentacene/n-Si diodes when illuminated by a monochromatic red light of 1.85 eV (670 nm). Excellent photoresponsivity of 2.6 A/W and the photoresponse time of less than 40 ns have been demonstrated. The photodiodes exhibited typical rectifying behavior in the dark and the leakage current increases with the deposition temperature.

    6,13-Diphenylpentacene(DPP)-TiO nano composites were firstly constructed. A series of characterizations proved that nano TiO was successfully coated by DPP molecules, leading to the generation of some novel properties. The most interesting result is that the forbidden band gaps of composites...
