Abstract

A demonstration is presented of how significant improvements in all-2D photodetectors can be achieved by exploiting the type-II band alignment of vertically stacked WS2 /MoS2 semiconducting heterobilayers and finite density of states of graphene electrodes. The photoresponsivity of WS2 /MoS2 heterobilayer devices is increased by more than an order of magnitude compared to homobilayer devices and two orders of magnitude compared to monolayer devices of WS2 and MoS2 , reaching 103 A W-1 under an illumination power density of 1.7 × 102 mW cm-2 . The massive improvement in performance is due to the strong Coulomb interaction between WS2 and MoS2 layers. The efficient charge transfer at the WS2 /MoS2 heterointerface and long trapping time of photogenerated charges contribute to the observed large photoconductive gain of ≈3 × 104 . Laterally spaced graphene electrodes with vertically stacked 2D van der Waals heterostructures are employed for making high-performing ultrathin photodetectors.
