Biological molecules, such as lipids and proteins, largely govern intricate biological functions of cells through ion channels, molecular recognizers, and catalysts embedded in the cell membrane. These sophisticated functions might come from interplays between a fluidic lipid bilayer and proteins in a controllable self-assembling manner. Aiming to combine the biological sophisticated functions with a two dimensional (2D) materials such as MoS2, we utilize peptides self-assembling on 2D nano-sheet as a glue between a lipid bilayer and 2D materials towards the opto-electronic applications. Using appropriate peptides, planer lipid bilayers were successfully formed on various 2D materials. The fluidity of lipid bilayer was modulated by the type of peptides. Using fluorophore tagged lipids, the fluidity of the planer lipid bilayer was evaluated by a technique of the fluorescence recovery after photo-bleaching. Optoelectronic property of MoS2 coated with assembled peptide/lipid was also investigated.
