Compensating Effect of Terbium Impurity on the Conductivity of TbxSn1 – xSe Solid Solutions
The interactions in the SnSe–TbSe system are investigated, and the solubility region of TbSe in SnSe is determined from the results of a complex physicochemical analysis. The dependence of the electrical conductivity and the concentration of current carriers of TbxSn1−xSe crystals on the composition and temperature is analyzed.
