Wrinkles take the heat

Single atomic sheets of black phosphorus are attracting attention for their potential in future electronics applications. A*STAR researchers have now completed experiments at the nanoscale to unlock the secret of this material's ...

Zapping a new approach to solar cells

A simple and fast microwave experiment with the common chemical element phosphorus at Flinders University has opened the prospect of more affordable and effective super-thin solar cells.

Understanding how flat phosphorus grows

The door to developing superior electronic devices, such as flexible circuits, has been nudged open by A*STAR researchers' modeling of possible methods to manufacture one of the crucial ingredients.

Method stabilizes, enhances phosphorene

Two years ago, Northwestern University's Mark Hersam discovered a way to stabilize exfoliated black phosphorus—or phosphorene—a layered semiconductor that chemically degrades in open air but shows great promise for electronics. ...
