Summary of "Gapless van der Waals Heterostructures for Infrared Optoelectronic Devices."

Mixed-dimensional vdW heterostructures based on two-dimensional (2D) materials exhibit immense potential in infrared optoelectronic applications. But, the weak vdW coupling results in limiting performance of infrared optoelectronic device. Here, we exploit a gapless heterostructure that S dangling bonds of non-layered PbS are connected to the bonding sites of MoS2 (with factitious S vacancies) via strong orbital hybridization. The strong interface coupling leads to ultrahigh responsivity and photogain (G) exceeding 105, and the detectivity (D*) is greater than 1014 Jones. More importantly, the gapless heterostructure shows fast rise and decay times about 47 μs and 49 μs, respectively, which is five orders of magnitude faster than that of transferred vdW heterostructures. Furthermore, an ultrahigh photon-triggered on/off ratio of 1.6×106 is achieved, which is four orders of magnitude higher than that of transferred vdW heterostructures. This architecture can offer an effective approach for advanced infrared optoelectronic devices.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Measurement of the regional temperature of the body or an organ by infrared sensing devices, based on self-emanating infrared radiation.

That portion of the electromagnetic spectrum usually sensed as heat. Infrared wavelengths are longer than those of visible light, extending into the microwave frequencies. They are used therapeutically as heat, and also to warm food in restaurants.

Spectrophotometry in the infrared region, usually for the purpose of chemical analysis through measurement of absorption spectra associated with rotational and vibrational energy levels of molecules. (McGraw-Hill Dictionary of Scientific and Technical Terms, 4th ed)

An optical source that emits photons in a coherent beam. Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation (LASER) is brought about using devices that transform light of varying frequencies into a single intense, nearly nondivergent beam of monochromatic radiation. Lasers operate in the infrared, visible, ultraviolet, or X-ray regions of the spectrum.

A noninvasive technique that uses the differential absorption properties of hemoglobin and myoglobin to evaluate tissue oxygenation and indirectly can measure regional hemodynamics and blood flow. Near-infrared light (NIR) can propagate through tissues and at particular wavelengths is differentially absorbed by oxygenated vs. deoxygenated forms of hemoglobin and myoglobin. Illumination of intact tissue with NIR allows qualitative assessment of changes in the tissue concentration of these molecules. The analysis is also used to determine body composition.
