Black phosphorus surges ahead of graphene

InterNano Industry News - 2 hours 16 min ago
A Korean team of scientists tune black phosphorus's band gap to form a superior conductor, allowing for the application to be mass produced for electronic and optoelectronics devices. The research team operating out of Pohang University of Science and Technology (POSTECH), affiliated with the Institute for Basic Science’s (IBS) Center for Artificial Low Dimensional Electronic Systems (CALDES), reported a tunable band gap in black phosphorus (BP), effectively modifying the semiconducting material into a unique state of matter with anisotropic dispersion. This research outcome potentially allows for great flexibility in the design and optimization of electronic and optoelectronic devices like solar panels and telecommunication lasers. Read More...
