Photocurrent mechanism for a hybrid system of 1-thioglycerol-capped HgTe nanoparticles was studied in the visible-infrared wavelength range. Absorption and photoluminescence spectra taken for the capped HgTe nanoparticles reveal strong excitonic peaks in the wavelength range from 800 to 1150 nm. The wavelength dependence of the photocurrent for the hybrid system was very close to that of the absorption spectrum.
