Local structure in Cu2ZnSn(SxSe1–x)4 alloys is studied by the extended X-ray absorption fine structure (EXAFS) method. K edge absorption spectra of four elements: Cu, Zn, Sn, and Se have been measured. The EXAFS analysis of the nearest neighbor shell is performed using simultaneous fitting of the data for all four K edges. This provides value of structural parameters in the most consistent way. The cation–anion interatomic distances exhibit the bimodal behavior, i.e., the Me–S and Me–Se distances (Me = Cu, Zn, and Sn) are practically constant over the whole composition range of Cu2ZnSn(SxSe1–x)4 alloys. They are compared to the X-ray diffraction (XRD) values for these alloys. The analysis of the EXAFS Debye-Waller factors indicates differences in the static disorder around different cations with the lowest disorder observed in the first coordination shell of Sn atoms.
