Abstract

Kuramite Cu 3SnS 4 nanocrystals with tetragonal structure have been synthesized by a simple one-step solution-based process and characterized in detail by X-ray diffraction, transmission electron microscopy, energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy. The nanocrystals show an optical band gap of 1.43 eV as estimated from the UV-vis-NIR spectrum.
