Towards an all-in fiber photodetector by directly bonding few-layer molybdenum disulfide to a fiber facet

Abstract

Although photodetectors based on two dimensional (2D) materials have been intensively studied, there are few reports of optical fiber compatible devices. Herein we successfully fabricated an all-in fiber photodetector (FPD) based on an end-face bonded with few-layer molybdenum disulfide (MoS2). Our FPD has a considerably high photo-responsivity of ∼0.6 A W−1 at a bias voltage of 4 V and 0.01 A W−1 under the bias-free conditions. We believe that the proposed platform may provide a new strategy for the integration of 2D materials in fibers and realization of optoelectronic and sensing applications.
