The capability to detect optical signals over a broad wavelength band is highly important for practical device applications. However, high speed responsive across entire wavelength band within a single photodetector remains challenge. Here we demonstrated a broadband photodetector using a single quantum-dot-doped polyaniline nanowire with a broadband responsive at 350-700 nm (see schematic). The high responsivity is attributed to the high density of trapping states at the enormous interfaces formed in polyaniline and quantum dots. The interface trapping can effectively reduce the recombination rate, promote the separation of photogenerated carriers, and then enhance the efficiency for optical detection.
