Novel microwave synthesis of near-metallic copper sulfide nanodiscs with size control: experimental and DFT studies of charge carrier density

Abstract

A simple unprecedented microwave synthesis of size controllable copper sufide (CuS) nanodiscs is reported. Experimental results and density functional theory (DFT)-calculated results determine the charge carriers densities on the order of 1021 cm-3 with an effective mass of 0.3me, resulting in near-metallic properties.
