The paper presents a theoretical investigation of the temperature and an out-of-plane Zeeman magnetic field effects on the interband optical conductivity of phosphorene. The electronic states are calculated with the tight-binding Hamiltonian and to compute the optical conductivity, the Kubo formalism is employed. The main result is that the multiple bands due to the perpendicular Zeeman splitting of the energy levels lead to the multiple resonance structures of the optical conductivity. It is found that the strong anisotropic interband optical conductivity of pristine phosphorene keeps the anisotropic feature when the temperature is increased. Importantly, our results show that the optical properties can be externally tuned via a magnetic field. In particular, when the magnetic field is applied, the unique anisotropic property breaks down and there is a little to no sign for temperature- and orientation-dependent transitions. The scientific soundness of findings is useful for practical aspects of phosphorene in spintronic.
