[en] The design of organic/inorganic nanoparticles hybrids provides the great potential for the fabrication of γ-ray sensor systems. Herein, structural and dosimetric properties of the gamma irradiated poly vinyl acetate (PVAc) doped with cadmium telluride quantum dots (CdTe QDs) and graphene oxide (GO) nanoflakes have been investigated. Thioglycolic acid (TGA) capped water-soluble CdTe QDs and (GO) nanoflakes are synthesized and characterized. Then, CdTe QDs/GO/PVAc sensors were formed by post-depositing CdTe and GO over polymer matrix. The photophysical interactions between nanoparticles and organic polymer have been investigated using ohmic contact detectors with two gold coated electrodes. Real time dose rate information of the sensors such as sensitivity, repeatability, and the linearity of dose rate response were assessed. A wider photoelectric response range and wider gamma harvesting range were observed in the resultant hybrid gamma sensor at a standard bias voltage with respect to non-hybrid CdTe QDs/PVAc sensors.
