A strategy to fabricate an ambipolar near-infrared vertical photodetector (VPD) by sandwiching a photoactive material as a channel film between the bottom graphene and top metal electrodes was developed. The channel length in the vertical architecture was determined by the channel layer thickness, which can provide an ultrashort channel length without the need for a high-precision manufacturing process. The performance of VPDs with two types of semiconductor layers, a graphene–PbS quantum dot hybrid (GQDH) and PbS quantum dots (QDs), was measured. The GQDH VPD showed better photoelectric properties than the QD VPD because of the high mobility of graphene doped in the channel. The GQDH VPD exhibited excellent photoresponse properties with a responsivity of 1.6 × 104 A/W in the p-type regime and a fast response speed with a rise time of 8 ms. The simple manufacture and the promising photoresponse of the GQDH VPDs reveal that an easy and effective way to fabricate high-performance ambipolar photodetectors was developed.
