In the past several years, organic–inorganic hybrid perovskites and all inorganic perovskites have attracted enormous research interest in a variety of optoelectronic applications including solar cells, light-emitting diodes, semiconductor lasers, and photodetectors for their plenty of appealing electrical and optoelectrical properties. Benefiting from the inherent amplification function of transistors and the pronounced photogating effect, perovskite-based phototransistors and hybrid photodetectors can provide very high photoresponsivity and gain, rendering them highly promising for some specific applications especially ultrasensitive light detection. A review on the recent progress of phototransistors and hybrid photodetectors using perovskites as light-sensitive materials is presented. The efforts and development in 3D and 2D perovskite-based phototransistors, and perovskite/functional material (e.g., graphene, 2D semiconductors, organic semiconductors, and other semiconductors) heterojunction-based hybrid photodetectors are introduced and discussed systematically. Some processing techniques for optimizing device performance are also addressed. In the final section, a conclusion of the research achievements is presented and possible challenges as well as outlook are provided to guide future activity in this research field.
