Researchers from Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) have developed a low-cost broadband photodetector that uses a metal-organic framework (MOF). As it does not contain any cost-intensive raw materials, it can be produced inexpensively in bulk.
MOFs have become a coveted material system over the past 20 years for their utility in medicine due to their highly porous nature, which allows use for catalysis or to slowly release drugs in the human body.
“The metal-organic framework compound developed at TU Dresden comprises an organic material integrated with iron ions,” said Dr. Artur Erbe, head of the Transport in Nanostructures group at HZDR’s Institute of Ion Beam Physics and Materials Research….READ MORE
