Abstract Transport properties, namely electrical conductivity σ, Hall coefficient R H and thermoelectric power Q , have been measured for thin films of the ternary chalcopyrite compounds CuInS 2 , CuInSe 2 and CuInTe 2 as a function of temperature in the range 80–400 K. The calculated values of the carrier concentration for the three compounds showed that all films are non-degenerate p-type semiconductors. The effective mass m ∗ was found to decrease with increasing temperature. The temperature… CONTINUE READING
