Black phosphorus doesn't mind de-aerated water

Researchers at the Center for Multidimensional Carbon Materials (CMCM), within the Institute for Basic Science(IBS) have discovered that one of graphene's competitors, black phosphorus, is inert to water deprived of oxygen, ...

Keeping cool with a black semiconductor

As anyone who has held a laptop computer or cell phone knows, they produce heat that has the potential to damage the microchips inside. However, layered, crystalline black phosphorus could lead to a new microchip design that ...

Exploring phosphorene, a promising new material

Two-dimensional phosphane, a material known as phosphorene, has potential application as a material for semiconducting transistors in ever faster and more powerful computers. But there's a hitch. Many of the useful properties ...

Black phosphorus surges ahead of graphene

A Korean team of scientists tune black phosphorus' band gap to form a superior conductor, allowing for the application to be mass produced for electronic and optoelectronics devices.

Could black phosphorus be the next silicon?

As scientists continue to hunt for a material that will make it possible to pack more transistors on a chip, new research from McGill University and Université de Montréal adds to evidence that black phosphorus could emerge ...

Black phosphorus reveals its secrets

A team of researchers from Université de Montréal, Polytechnique Montréal and the Centre national de la recherche scientifique (CNRS) in France is the first to succeed in preventing two-dimensional layers of black phosphorus ...
