Black phosphorus —sometimes referred to as phosphorene in a nod to its 2-D cousin, graphene—has been on a research tidal wave since 10- to 20-atom-thick sheets of the material were first exfoliated back in 2014. The research community has been excited by a number of its properties, like its tunable band gap, which opens up all sorts of photonic applications . But they have also perceived its intrinsically strong in-plane anisotropy, which means its properties are dependent on the orientation of the crystal, as being at once a strength and a weakness. Now a joint research project involving scientists from MIT, Tohoku University in Japan, Oa...
