1.3-nm Photodetector Can Generate More Current Than Thicker Devices

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments
A photodetector that is ten times smaller than current standard silicon diodes has been developed using molybdenum disulfide (MoS2) sandwiched between two graphene sheets. The 2D device, which has just one layer of MoS2, demonstrated the ability to produce more photocurrent than comparable multilayered devices, even though it absorbed less light. To discover the reason for this surprising result, researchers from the Institute of Basic Science (IBS) compared photovoltaic devices with one layer of MoS2 with devices with seven layers of MoS2, and tested how well the devices were able to...Read full article
