Porous silicon (PSi) non-symmetric multilayers are modified by organic molecular beam deposition of an organic semiconductor, namely the N,N’-1H,1H-perfluorobutyldicyanoperylene-carboxydi-imide (PDIF-CN2). Joule evaporation of PDIF-CN2 into the PSi sponge-like matrix not only improves but also adds transducing skills, making this solid-state device a dual (optical and electrical) signal sensor for biochemical monitoring. PDIF-CN2 modified PSi optical microcavities show an increase of about 5 orders of magnitude in electric current with respect to the same bare device. This feature can be used to sense volatile substances.
