Using Hall photovoltage measurements, we demonstrate that a linear transverse Hall voltage can be induced in few-layer WTe2 under circularly polarized illumination. We find that the photon-helicity induced Hall effect is strongly anisotropic with respect to the crystal axis. Our results are consistent with the Berry curvature and its dipolar distribution due to the breaking of inversion symmetry. We also studied how the Hall voltage changes with varying layer numbers. Time resolved optoelectronic autocorrelation spectroscopy shows the comparatively long spin lifetime of carriers caused by the momentum-indirect electron and hole pockets in WTe2.
