In this work, wavelength sensitive organic bulk-hetero photodiodes were fabricated by a piezoelectric inkjet method based on the J-type aggregates of cyanine dye molecules doped into poly(3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene):poly(styrene sulfonate) thin films on indium tin oxide anodes. The cyanine dye concentration in the inkjet printed films was optimized and the J-aggregate formation during the drying process was investigated by local absorption spectra. It was found that at lower dye concentrations, not only the J-aggregate formation but also the radiation sensitivities of the films were improved significantly. Moreover, the stacking of the cyanine dye - poly(3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene):poly(styrene sulfonate) spots demonstrated the linear increase on the optical density and film thickness without deteriorating the J-aggregate formation, indicating their potential in application as narrow band filters.
