A Jena, Germany-based research team, working with its Australian colleagues, has grown 2D materials directly on optical fibers. The researchers used a technique that involved integrating transition metal dichalcogenides, a 2D material with strong optical and photonic properties, into optimally constructed glass fibers.
The materials system the researchers’ technique produced holds value in sensor technology, where it could be used to detect low concentration of gases, as well as in nonlinear light conversion. Because the hybrid optical fiber developed by the team possesses nonlinear properties, the fiber can convert monochromatic laser light into white light — supporting spectroscopic applications in biology, chemistry,…READ MORE
