Paper Abstract

Organic photodiodes open new possibilities concerning the integration into micro-optical systems. The ease of processing, based on layer-by-layer vacuum deposition, and the possibility to deposit these devices basically on any substrate as well as the possibility to tune the spectral response make organic photodiodes attractive for integrated systems, especially allowing facile integration with planar chip-based systems. For the application of these devices as integrated detectors two examples will be presented. The first example presents the monolithic integration of OPDs with optical waveguides. A further example presents the utilization of OPDs for the direct electric detection of surface plasmon polaritons. Plasmon diodes could be beneficial for a wide range of plasmonic applications, from sensors to nanooptical circuitry.
