The electronic band structure is calculated for ternary thallium copper chalcogenides TlCu2S2 and TlCu2Se2. The electronic density of states calculated for these chalcogenides shows fairly good agreement with valence-band X-ray photoemission spectra. The conduction bands are mainly composed of S 3p (or Se 4p) states and have the hole-like Fermi surfaces. These results are consistent with electrical transport properties measured for these chalcogenides.
