Organic photodetectors (OPDs) are promising for applications in flexible electronics due to their advantages of excellent photodetection performance, cost-effective solution-fabrication capability, flexible device design, and adaptivity to manufacturability. This review outlines the recent advances in the development of high-performance OPDs and their applications in flexible electronics. The approaches to developing different noise reduction methods, filter-free spectral selective detection, flexible OPDs, and scale-up production of flexible OPDs through solution-fabrication processes are discussed. Applications of the OPD technology ultimately result in the materialization of wearable units, flexible and compact information sensors at commercially viable costs, including wearable health self-monitoring devices, flexible optical communication systems, and flexible large-area image sensors.
