  An organic photodetector has been developed for dark and spectral response under intense illumination of visible light at 1% Sun. The photosensor devices were fabricated with and without a blended polymer-methyl red dye layer and its photovoltaic properties have been studied. The polymers and blended layers were deposited onto fluorine-doped tin oxide covered glass substrates by spin-coating techniques and an aluminum electrode was prepared on top by electron beam evaporation techniques forming an active area of 0.06 cm2. The characterizations were performed by UV-visible spectrophotometers and picoammeter to investigate their absorption spectra and photovoltaic parameters of dye-doped photodetectors such as open circuit voltages, short circuit currents, fill factors and power conversion efficiency have been calculated to be 614 mV, 7.87 nA, 0.267 and 0.00214%, respectively. The photovoltaic current was also measured under dark and illuminated regimes with rise times at 300 msec. indicating potential application as dye-sensitized photosensors.
