Title: Chemical manipulation of phase stability and electronic behavior in Cu 4−x Ag x Se 2

Gradual stoichiometric chemical substitution of Cu by Ag in the p-type Cu 2 Se phase enables phase segregation and incremental switching of the electronic transport to n-type behavior for large Ag/Cu ratios.
