With a semiconducting band gap and high charge carrier mobility, two-dimensional (2D) black phosphorus (BP)—often referred to as phosphorene—holds significant promise for next generation electronics and optoelectronics. However, as a 2D material, it possesses a higher surface area to volume ratio than bulk BP, suggesting that its chemical and thermal stability will be modified. Herein, an atomic-scale microscopic and spectroscopic study is performed to characterize the thermal degradation of… Expand
