  • A new near infrared (NIR) absorbing dye, phenyl-fused dibenzo-BODIPY with benzo[1,3,2]oxazaborinine rings (PhBODIPY), for organic photodiode (PDs). 
  • PhBODIPY can be deposited on the substrates without thermal decomposition and its deposited film is amorphous state with high thermal stability. The deposited film showed broadband absorption in the wavelength range of 600‒1000 nm.
  • The NIR-OPD with PhBODIPY neat film demonstrated a detectivity (D*) of 7.41 × 1011 Jones under NIR light irradiation at a wavelength of 820 nm. The D* improved to 1.70 × 1012 Jones by co-deposition of 1:1 (w/w) PhBODIPY:fullerene (C60).
