About 0 35 g of powders ball-milled for 20 h were heated under argon in a Netzsch 404 differential scanning calorimeter (DSC) at a rate of 20 C/min from 25 C to desired temperatures and then naturally cooled to the ambient temperature The heated powders were

These elemental powders were initially milled using zirconia balls The aCuSe phase was present in all of the milled powders because of the mechanical alloying effect between the Cu and Se powders The solid state reaction mechanism was examined for the synthesis process The phase analysis suggested that the Cu2ZnSnSe4 powder crystallized into

powders were milled for 1 2 4 8 16 and 24 hours in a ZOZ high energy mill at 400 rpm and with a ball to powder ratio of 10:1 Milling was done in gaseous nitrogen The particle size morphology grain size and phase constituents of the milled powders were determined as a function of the milling time A CILAS particle size analyzer was used
