Thermally drawn metal–insulator–semiconductor fibers provide a scalable path to functional fibers. Here, a ladder-like metal–semiconductor–metal photodetecting device is formed inside a single silica fiber in a controllable and scalable manner, achieving a high density of optoelectronic components over the entire fiber length and operating at a bandwidth of 470 kHz, orders of magnitude larger than any other drawn fiber device.
