Is Black Phosphorous the Next Big Thing in Materials?

A new experimental revelation about black phosphorus nanoribbons should facilitate the future applica- tion of this highly promising material to electronic, optoelectronic and thermoelectric devices. A team of Molecular Foundry users working with Jeff Urban in the Inorganic Nanostruc- tures facility has experimentally con- firmed strong in-plane anisotropy in thermal conductivity, up to a factor […]
