Synthesis and characterisation of famatinite copper antimony sulfide nanocrystals

Author affiliations

Abstract

The method to synthesise monodisperse copper antimony sulfide (CAS) nanocrystals is reported for the first time. This material opens up a new class of I–V–VI semiconductor nanocrystals and antimony-based nanocrystals in general. The novel CAS nanocrystals synthesised here absorb over UV-vis-NIR wavelengths and are suitable for application in near infrared detectors, as well as telecommunication, thermoelectric, and solar photovoltaic devices.
