Abstract:

A study was made of the properties of tetrahedrallybonded semiconductors generally, and particularly to those possessing superlattices, with especial reference to the effect of such superlattices on the phonon contribution to thermal conductivity. Two lattice types have been dealt with those based on zinc blende or wurtzite, and those based on sulvanite Cu3VS4. Some compounds which were prepared turned out to belong to neither of these classifications, and a great many possible compositions proved not to be compounds at all. The negative results are included for completeness.
