Abstract
The combined powder X-ray diffraction, microstructural, local and bulk chemical analyses of natural pyrite single crystals from Reiche Zeche, Johangeorgenstadt and Pretzchendorf (Erzgebirge, Saxony, Germany) showed compositions FeAs0.002(1)S1.998(9), FeAs0.004(1)S1.996(9) and FeAs0.005(1)S1.995(9), respectively. The arsenic doping leads to smaller semiconducting energy gaps (Eg ~0.1–0.2 eV) in comparison with binary FeS2 (Eg = 0.96 eV), as well as switching of conduction type mechanism from n-to the p-type. These findings are supported by the measurements of the electrical resistivity and Seebeck coefficient of the synthetic FeAsxS2-x series (maximal As-content x = 0.01 at 773 K). The investigations of sintered FeS2 + MO2 (M = Si, Ti, Zr) composites indicate that some insulating metal oxides as impurities influence less the electrical transport properties of pyrite. All performed studies unambiguously confirmed that p-type conductivity for T gt; 300 K is a hallmark of the ternary As-doped FeAsxS2-x (x ≥ 0.002) pyrites. © 2020
