Graphene-Based Photodetector Aimed at IoT, Wearable Devices #cad

Researchers at the Center for Integrated Nanostructure Physics within the Institute for Basic Science (IBS) in Korea have used graphene to develop the thinnest photodetector to date that can produce even more electrical current than even larger devices. The work bodes well for providing smaller and more powerful components for Internet of Things (IoT) devices and wearable electronics, as well as has implications for photovoltaic and other optical applications, researchers said. A photodetector converts light into an electric currentand comes in many variations. The one developed by the team at the IBS is just 1.3 nanometers thick -- 10 times smaller than current standard silicon diodes -- and is comprised of molybdenum disulfide sandwiched in graphene. Graphene is a key element in the device, being conductive and thin, allowing for the slim size of the photodetector. Howev...
