Abstract

In this paper, we describe the synthesis and characterization of the solid solution Cu_2Zn_(1-x)Fe_xGeSe_4. Electronic transport data have been analyzed using a single parabolic band model and have been compared to Cu_(2+x)Zn_(1-x)GeSe_4. The effective mass of these undoped, intrinsically hole conducting materials increases linearly with increasing carrier concentration, showing a non-parabolic transport behavior within the valence band.
