Paper Abstract

The electrical resistivity measurement on ZrS0.5Se1.5 has shown a metallic behavior in the range 333-363 K followed immediately by metal-semiconductor transition. It is verified using percolation model and Mott-Hamilton- Pollack relation that this particular composition of zirconium sulphoselenides is 3D. Details show a sine wave potential which is indicative of the prevalence of charge density wave. Umpklapp processes are found to dominate giving rise to T6 power law for resistivity in the metallic range.
