Development of a promising photosensitive Schottky barrier diode using a novel Cd(II) based coordination polymer

Abstract

A novel 1D Cd(II) based coordination polymer (Complex 1) has been synthesized involving 8-aminoquinoline based Schiff base ligand and cyanate ion. It has been characterized by elemental analysis, different spectroscopic methods, and X-ray single crystal diffraction technique. Most interestingly it exhibits unique properties like electrical conductivity and photosensitivity which shows its potential in optoelectronic device application. Both experimentally and theoretically we prove that electrical conduction under irradiation of visible light increases many folds in comparison to dark condition. Our synthesized material based device shows some paramount behaviour under irradiance of light which is obvious in light sensing Schottky devices. The rectification ratio of our complex based device was found to be 12.44 and 27.74 under dark and photo irradiation conditions respectively. The discovery of such type of coordination polymer is advancement in the area of optoelectronic devices.
