N2 - Recently, the re-discovered black phosphorus (BP) has been extensively investigated for both electronic and photonic applications. However, the intrinsic instability of BP caused by moisture or oxygen reaction in ambient atmosphere has overshadowed its practical applications. Here, we present a liquid phase exfoliation-based approach for the production of few-layer BP (FL-BP) and the subsequent mixing with polycarbonate (PC) for the fabrication of a composite, which significantly reduces BP degradation by PC passivation. Experimentally, the functionalized PC few-layer BP (PC/FL-BP) composite shows environmental stability if compared with mechanically exfoliated BP flakes.

A Q-switched laser with pulse energy up to 25.2 nJ and pulse duration down to 1.65 μs is obtained at a low pump power of 71.7 mW.
