Abstract : The overall objective of this work was to enable multi-spectral photon detection using hybrid nanocomposites. The corecontribution of this work was the development of emulsion-based, resonant infrared matrix-assisted pulsed laserevaporation (RIR-MAPLE) for the deposition of hybrid nanocomposite devices. Significant contributions from this endeavorinclude demonstrating the unique morphology of hybrid nanocomposites deposited by RIR-MAPLE; demonstrating hybridnanocomposite infrared photodetectors and solar cells deposited by RIR-MAPLE, and developing a simulation tool foroptoelectronic device performance that accounts for RIR-MAPLE film properties.
