Abstract

This Letter presents a new family of Schottky graphene/silicon (Si) photodetectors (PDs) based on hollow-core photonic crystal fibers (HPCFs), working at both optical communication and room temperature. The proposed structure has the advantage of plasmonic HPCFs in a slow-light regime, and the absorption mechanism is based on an internal photoemission effect. The main feature of this structure is that the enhanced electric field is strongly localized in the hollow core of the guided core mode with the surface plasmon modes at the surface metal wires embedded in the photonic crystal structure. For the proposed graphene/silicon Schottky PD, numerical simulation predicts responsivity of 0.39A/W, and continuous-wave sensitivity of 59dBm, which reveals substantial improvements compared to that of typical metal/Si Schottky PDs.
