Detection of electromagnetic signals for applications such as health, product quality monitoring or astronomy requires highly responsive and wavelength selective devices. Photomultiplication-type organic detectors (PM-OPDs) have shown to achieve high quantum efficiencies mainly in the visible range. Much less research has been focused on realizing near-infrared narrowband PM-OPDs. Here, we demonstrate fully vacuum-processed narrow- and broadband PM‑OPDs. Our devices are based on enhanced hole injection leading to a maximum external quantum efficiency (EQE) of almost 2000% at -10 V for the broadband device. The photomultiplicative effect is also observed in the charge-transfer (CT) state absorption region. By making use of an optical cavity device architecture, we enhance CT absorption and demonstrate a wavelength tunable narrowband PM-OPD with EQEs superior to those of pin‑devices. The presented concept can further improve the performance of state-of-the-art OPDs based on the absorption of CT states, which were so far limited by the low EQE provided by these devices.
