Graphitic Carbon Nitride/Semiconductor Quantum Dots 2D/0D Heterostructures — •Thuy Linh Nguyen Thi, Oleksandr Selyshchev, and Dietrich R.T. Zahn — Semiconductor Physics, TU Chemnitz, Chemnitz D-09107, Germany
The 2D semiconductor graphitic carbon nitride (g-C3N4) is of great interest due to its photocatalytic properties and potential application in optoelectronic devices. However, a relatively large bandgap of 2.7 eV  requires its additional sensibilization to extend the photosensitivity to entire visible range. Here, we investigate heterostructures of n-type g-C3N4 and p-type semiconductor quantum dots (QDs), e.g. AgInS2. The single-layered g-C3N4 flakes exfoliated from bulk material using tetraethylammonium hydroxide (TEA-OH) ligands  and AgInS2 QDs with a size of ~3.5 nm  were used in aqueous solutions. X-ray Diffraction (XRD) indicates the intercalation of TEA-OH ligands between the flakes of g-C3N4. The thickness of the carbon nitride flakes of 0.3 +/- 0.1 nm, corresponding to a monolayer, and lateral sizes in the range of 35 - 55 nm are confirmed by Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM). Photoluminescence (PL) quenching of both g-C3N4 and QDs indicates an electronic interaction. A model photodetector device based on a thin film of a g-C3N4 and QD mixture, a TiO2 transport layer, indium-tin-oxide and gold electrodes was utilized for investigating the photoconductivity.
