[en] Highlights: • Facile synthesis of laterally aligned ZnO nanorods was done. • SPR of metal NPs was utilized for plasmon field effect transistor. • Pt NPs are better than Au NPs for improving the photosensitivity. • Pt NPs were very effective towards defects states passivation. Hydrothermally processed highly photosensitive ZnO nanorods based plasmon field effect transistors (PFETs) have been demonstrated utilizing the surface plasmon resonance coupling of Au and Pt nanoparticles at Au/Pt and ZnO interface. A significantly enhanced photocurrent was observed due to the plasmonic effect of the metal nanoparticles (NPs). The Pt coated PFETs showed Ion/Ioff ratio more than 3 × 104 under the dark condition, with field-effect mobility of 26 cm2 V−1 s−1 and threshold voltage of −2.7 V. Moreover, under the illumination of UV light (λ = 350 nm) the PFET revealed photocurrent gain of 105 under off-state (−5 V) of operation. Additionally, the electrical performance of PFETs was investigated in detail on the basis of charge transfer at metal/ZnO interface. The ZnO nanorods growth temperature was preserved at 110 °C which allowed a low temperature, economical and simple method to develop highly photosensitive ZnO nanorods network based PFETs for large scale production.
