Abstract: Bulk samples of the pyrite chalcogenide solid solutions Co1−xFexS2 s0øxø0.5d, have been prepared and their crystal structures and magnetic properties studied by x-ray diffraction and SQUID magnetization measurements. Across the solution series, the distance between sulfur atoms in the persulfide sS2 2−d unit remains nearly constant. First principles electronic structure calculations using experimental crystal structures as inputs point to the importance of this constant S-S distance, in helping antibonding S-S levels pin the Fermi energy. In contrast hypothetical rock-salt CoS is not a good half metal, despite being nearly isostructural and isoelectronic. We use our understanding of the Co1−xFexS2 system to make some prescriptions for new half-metallic ferromagnetic.
