This study describes the design of a flexible narrowband organic photodiode (OPDs) with a novel structure. A bulk heterojunction of poly(3-hexylthiophene-2,5-diyl) (P3HT) and [6,6]-phenyl-C70-butyric acid methyl ester (PC70BM) is introduced as a photoactive layer, with an optimized thickness of 160 nm, and a MoO3/Ag/MoO3 (MAM) multilayer electrode and polyimide (PI) film substrate were used. The OPD with the device architecture of PI/MAM/P3HT:PC70BM/Al showed narrowband photodiode performance in the 500-650 nm wavelength range. The maximum external quantum efficiency (EQE) of the OPD was 15.41% at 570 nm, which dropped to similar to 0% outside the operation wavelength range. This narrowband detectivity originated from the cutoff of light at wavelengths below 500 nm by the PI substrate and photoreactivity of P3HT:PC70BM at wavelengths between 300 and 650 nm. Outer bending tests performed over 1000 cycles revealed that the average maximum EQE remained at similar to 15%. The maximum responsivity of the OPD was calculated to be 0.07 A W-1 at 570 nm. The OPD device showed a narrow response spectrum with a full width at half maximum of 100 nm. This research suggests a new approach for the fabrication of flexible OPDs with high selectivity in color detection.
