Organic photoconductors sensitive to blue, green, and red light were fabricated using coumarin 6 (C6)-doped poly(m-hexoxyphenyl)phenylsilane (PHPPS), rhodamine 6G (R6G)-doped polymethylphenylsilane (PMPS), and zinc phthalocyanine (ZnPc)/tris-8-hydroxyquinoline aluminum (Alq[sub 3]) double layer, respectively. Selectivities of the spectral responses of these films were good enough to divide the incident light into three color components, indicating the possibility of color separation without prism for video cameras. The quantum efficiency of a ZnPc/Alq[sub 3] double-layer film is over an order of magnitude better than those of C6/PHPPS and R6G/PMPS blend films due to the dissociation of electron-hole pair generated at the interface between ZnPc and Alq[sub 3].
