A sensitive nanosized molybdenum oxide (MoOx) photodetector is manufactured at a desired position by electron-beam-induced deposition (EBID). As-deposited MoOx had a conductivity ∼300Scm-1. After 2h annealing at 573K, the conductivity of nanowires decreased 10 times to ∼30Scm-1 and MoOx had photoconductivity. Nanosized MoOx wires enhanced the sensitivity of optical devices due to an increased surface area to volume ratio.
