Abstract

The 750 degrees and 550 degrees isotherms of this pseudobinary system were investigated by the evacuated silica tube technique using molten halides fluxes. The continuous variation of the a and c parameters as a function of composition points to a complete solid solution between the two end-members in spite of the different space groups (CuFeSnS (sub 4) , stannite, I42m; Cu (sub 2) ZnS (sub 4) , kesterite, I4). Although the possible mechanism of substitution between Fe and Zn and/or between (Fe, Zn) and Cu remains unclear, the space group transition is found to occur in the compositional range 60- 70 mole% Cu (sub 2) ZnS (sub 4) .
