This paper focuses on the photoelectric properties of heterostructures formed by surface-modified Si (111) and hexagonal, quintuple-layered selenides (Bi2Se3 and Sb2Te3). It was shown that H-passivated Si (111) can form robust Schottky junctions with either Bi2Se3 or Sb2Te3. When back illuminated (i.e., light incident towards the Si side of the junction), both the Bi2Se3/Si and Sb2Te3/Si junctions exhibited significant photovoltaic response at 1030 nm, which is right within the near-infrared (NIR) light wavelength range. A maximum external quantum efficiency of 14.7% with a detection response time of 2 ms for Bi2Se3/Si junction, and of 15.5% with a 0.8 ms response time for the Sb2Te3/Si junction, were achieved. Therefore, utilizing Si constituents as high-pass filters, the Bi2Se3 (Sb2Te3)/Si heterojunctions can serve as monochromatic NIR photodetectors. View Full-Text
