An ultracompact, mid-infrared spectrometer that uses a 10-nm thick, single tunable black phosphorus photodetector shows promise as an on-chip device for sensing, surveillance, and spectral imaging. The device is the result of a collaboration among scientists from Yale University, Bar-Ilan University (Israel), and the National Institute of Materials Science (Japan).
The spectrometer has an active area footprint of only 9 × 16 µm2. It measures light in the 2- to 9-µm spectral range and was constructed at the scale of the operational wavelength. The light-matter interactions in its black phosphorus photodetector can be tuned to capture the different spectral components.
