Facile One–pot Solvothermal Synthesis of CdTe Nanorods and Their Photoelectrical Properties

Abstract

Uniform CdTe NRs were synthesized by a one-pot PVP-assisted solvothermal process under mild conditions. By adjusting the amounts of the surfactant, reducing agent and the reaction temperature, CdTe NRs with 80±30 nm in diameter and 300~500 nm in length were prepared. It was found that uniform CdTe NRs can be obtained with 0.4 g PVP, 5.0 ml AAAS and 2mL CdCl2·2.5H2O aqueous solution at 150 °C for 12 h. By assembling CdTe NRs into photodetectors, 2.51 μA of photocurrent and 0.106 A/W of responsivity were obtained under illumination of 650 nm pulsed incident light with a period of 120 s under 300 K, laser power of 23.7 μW and bias voltages of +1.0 V. The rise time and decay time of the device are 81s and 84s, respectively.
