The crystal structure of CuS has been confirmed experimentally using the powder diffraction method on the high-resolution powder diffractometer at the Rutherford-Appleton laboratory. The observed crystal structure is P6_3/mmc . Standard density functional calculations on CuS on a variety of crystal structures are also reprled. The calculations also predict P6_3/mmc as the stable crystal structure. On the basis of the agreement between theory and experiment we are able to discuss the delails of the bonding in this material.
