Black phosphorus is a narrow-gap semiconductor newly attracting attention because of recent success in growing single crystals at a high temperature under a high pressure. This review covers recent research work on the preparation, the crystal structure, the band structure, the electrical and optical properties, and the superconductivity of black phosphorus.
