Abstract

IN a previous communication1, we reported that two mechanisms are discernible in the electrical conductivity of stannous sulphide: positive-hole conduction, depending on the departure of the material from stoichiometric composition; and, at higher temperatures, a second mechanism with higher activation energy, fairly reproducible from one sample to another. This high-temperature conduction, we suggested, represents the intrinsic electronic conductivity of the crystal lattice.
