Abstract

The electrical properties of ZnAs2 single crystals were measured along the [001] direction in the pressure range from 0 to 9 GPa. The electrical resistivity of the crystals was found to decrease by one order of magnitude as the pressure increases from 0 to 7 GPa, without significant changes at higher pressures. The Hall coefficient drops by two orders of magnitude as the pressure increases from 0 to 7 GPa and remains constant in the range from 7 to 9 GPa.
