Abstract


  • Constructing high-performance photo-electrodes by patterning the photo-active

    semiconducting components with desirable texture and architecture is one of the most

    promising approaches to achieve the practical and scale-up application of photo-electric

    or photoelectrochemical (PEC) devices. However, it is a still big challenge to efficiently

    and effectively handle nano-structural semiconducting materials into intergraded circuit

    devices, displaying good electric-contact and stability. Here, a facile manufacture

    strategy for fabricating native metal-oxides based photo-electrodes by directly printing

    Ga-based liquid metals is explored. The PEC device, functionalized by the native

    Ga-oxide functional layer, exhibits self-powered photo-detection behaviors and presents

    fast photo-electric responsibility in response to the simulated Sunlight illumination.

    This printable PEC device shows good potential for high sensitive self-powered

    photo-detector and provides a flexible and versatile approach for the design and

    fabrication of novel electrode structures.
