In the present work, we report the synthesis of a large area of single-crystal MoS2 film using the hot wire-CVD method. The thickness and morphology of the MoS2 thin film were studied using AFM and FESEM. The formation of single crystal and nearly stoichiometric MoS2 nanosheet film was confirmed using Raman spectroscopy, XRD, TEM, and EDAX analysis. The XRD analysis shows that the MoS2 crystallite has a preferred orientation along the (002) direction. Finally, the photodetector and humidity sensing properties of the MoS2-based sensor were investigated at room temperature. The photodetector shows excellent photoresponse with a fast rise time of ~ 0.18 s and decay time of ~ 0.27 s, with high photosensitivity (~ 13.87), photoresponsivity (~ 58.95 μA/W), and photodetectivity (~ 2.01 × 108 Jones). The maximum humidity sensitivity factor of ~ 900% with a response time of ~ 52 s and recovery time of ~ 2 s were observed for the MoS2-based humidity sensor. Our work demonstrates that MoS2 can potentially realize photodetectors and humidity sensors.
