This work studied the electrical effects of the substitution of tin with silicon on p-type Cu2ZnSnS4 semiconductor compounds. To this purpose, two samples, namely Cu2ZnSnS4 and Cu2ZnSn0.5Si0.5S4, were prepared. The samples purities and homogeneities were characterized by both Energy Dispersive X-ray (EDX) spectroscopy and powder X-ray diffraction (PXRD). We observed that the temperature dependence of the electrical conductivity of materials exhibits a crossover from T (1/4) to T (1) dependence in the temperature range between 130 and 140 K. The characteristic temperature (T-0,T-Mott), the hopping distance (R-hop), the average hopping energy (Delta(hop)), the localization length (xi) and the density of states (N(E-F)), were determined, and their values were discussed within the models describing conductivity in p-type semiconductor.
