Paper Abstract

The market for printed and flexible electronics, key attributes for internet of things, is estimated to reach $45 billion by 2016 and paper-based electronics shows great potential to meet this increasing demand due to its popularity, flexibility, low cost, mass productivity, disposability, and ease of processing. Solar-blind deep ultraviolet (DUV) photodetectors (PDs) can be widely applied in wearable applications such as military sensing, automatization, short-range communications security and environmental detection. In this work, we present flexible DUV paper PDs consisting of 2D boron nitride (h-BN) with good detectivity, fast recovery time (down to 0.393 s), great thermal stability (146 W/m K, 3-order-of-magnitude larger than conventional flexible substrates), high working temperature (up to 200 oC), excellent flexibility and bending durability (showing repeatable ON/OFF switching during 200-time bending cycles), which opens avenues to the flexible electronics.
