Guc, M.; Levcenko, S.; Dermenji, L.; Gurieva, G.; Schorr, S.; Syrbu, N.N.; Arushanov, E.: Exciton spectra and energy band structure of Cu2ZnSiSe4. Journal of Alloys and Compounds 587 (2014), p. 393-397

Exciton spectra are studied in Cu2ZnSiSe4 single crystals at 10 and 300 K by means of reflection spectroscopy. The exciton parameters, dielectric constant and free carriers effective masses are deduced from experimental spectra by calculations in the framework of a model taking into account the spatial dispersion and the presence of a dead-layer. The structure found in the reflectivity was analyzed and related to the theoretical electronic band structure of close related Cu2ZnSiS4 semiconductor.
