- Solvothermal synthesis was investigated as a viable method for the fabrication of quaternary Cu2ZnSnSe4 (CZTSe) semiconductor compound. With metal salts and selenium powder as starting materials, single-phase CZTSe nanoparticles, as determined by X-ray diffraction and Raman analysis, were obtained in a quantitative yield after solvothermal reaction at 200 C for 24 h. Transmission electron microscopy (TEM) further revealed that the CZTSe were nanoflakes formed by aggregation of nanoparticles. The average particle size estimated from X-ray diffraction data was 49 nm. Furthermore, the metal ratio of CZTSe was precisely tunable by varying the molar ratio of starting metal salts in the solvothermal synthesis.
