Pressure Quenching: A New Route for the Synthesis of Black Phosphorus

Abstract

The method to synthesize black phosphorus (BP) has been studied for a few decades, with several challenges remaining to be solved. In this paper, BP flakes was synthesized using a novel method which we named as “Pressure Quenching” approach. Briefly, BP was obtained from red phosphorus (RP) through a controllable phase transition with conditions below 0.4 GPa and 580 oC. The synthesis mechanism was investigated in details via a decompression process at a fixed temperature, through the phase transition exhibited the energy barrier dependence. Meanwhile, an extra tunable energy was generated by pressure quenching as supplement for the phase transition. Therefore, the transition from RP to BP could be easily controlled by tuning the applied pressure.
