Title: Synthesis and characterization of magnetic semiconducting Cu{sub 2}CoSnS{sub 4} nanoparticles

Multifunctional wurtzite Cu{sub 2}CoSnS{sub 4} (CCoTS) nanoparticles were successfully synthesized by facile hot-injection method using elemental sulfur as sulfur source. As-synthesized CCoTS nanoparticles were characterized using X-ray diffraction (XRD) for phase identification. Morphology of as-prepared nanoparticles was examined using FEG-SEM and FEG-TEM. Resistivity of film was measured using four probe method and it’s value (0.8 Ωcm) lies in the range of semiconductors. Magnetization curve of Cu{sub 2}CoSnS{sub 4} nanoparticles (at room temperature) indicates weak ferromagnetic behavior.
