Two-dimensional materials have become the focus of attention of researchers in recent years. The demand for two-dimensional materials is increasing day by day, especially with the inadequacy of graphene in optical applications. In this context, the optical and electrical characteristics of the PVP:GaSe thin film nanocomposites were investigated. The surface morphologies of the samples were characterized by SEM, the thin film thicknesses and refractive index parameters were measured by the Ellipsometer method, the structural characteristics were obtained by XRD, and Raman and PL spectroscopy was used to determine the optical characteristics. Critical parameters of Au/PVP:GaSe/n-Si photodetector were calculated under various illumination intensities. It is observed that photodetector with PVP:%5GaSe thin film has the best performance results. According to the experimental results, its responsivity, external quantum efficiency, and detectivity values are 0.485 A W-1, %86, and 1.14 x 10(7) cm Hz(1/2) W-1 respectively.
