Electronic self-passivation of single vacancy in black phosphorus

Physical characteristics of the self-passivated single vacancy (SV). (a) High resolution STM image of the self-passivated SV showing that it adopts a butterfly-shaped feature spanning over two of its nearest neighbours. (b) Atomic structure of the self-passivated SV with labelled crystallographic directions and the corresponding side-view (bottom panel). The yellow (violet) atoms indicate the phosphorus…
