Characteristics of photodetectors with asymmetric source and drain contacts and armchair graphene nanoribbons (a-GNR) channel under monochromatic illuminations of various incident energies in the range of mid infrared to solar blind ultra violet are simulated. Simulations show the photocurrent spectrum for the device connected between asymmetric leads made of Au-contacted and Ti-contacted graphenes, under monochromatic illumination of incident intensity 103 W/cm2, exhibits a peak current of 1.897 μA. This peak that is obtained in absence of any external biases, applied to the device terminals, occurs at the energy E=5.02 eV and correspond to the quantum efficiency of 60%. The evaluated responsivity for this photodetector under zero applied biases equals 13.4 A/mW. The negative and positive local photocurrents are shown peak near the p-type source channel and n-type drain-channel boundaries under negative gate to source voltages, respectively. Polarities of the local photocurrents alter when the gate-source voltage approaches to the Dirac point, for which the maximum total photocurrent is achieved. Finally, the total device current versus the drain-source voltages obtained under monochromatic illumination, for VGS=0, is shown to shift toward negative values in comparison the dark current. Simulations are performed, using the nonequilibrium Green’s function (NEGF) formalismcoupled to Poisson solver.
