The fabrication of a superior-performance ultraviolet (UV) photodetector utilizing graphene quantum dots (GQDs) as a sensitization agent on a ZnO-nanorod/GaN-nanotower heterostructure has been (;QDs realized. GQD sensitization displays substantial impact on the electrical as well as the optical performance of a heterojunction UV photodetector. The GQD sensitization stimulates charge carriers in both ZnO and GaN and allows energy band alignment, which is realized by a spontaneous time-correlated transient response. The fabricated device demonstrates an excellent responsivity of 3.2 x 10(3) A/W at -6 V and displays an enhancement of similar to 265% compared to its bare counterpart. In addition, the fabricated heterostructure UV photodetector exhibits a very high external quantum efficiency of 1.2 X 10(6)%, better switching speed, and signal detection capability as low as similar to 50 fW.
