In an attempt to prepare infrared materials which have properties superior to those of the II-IV chalcogenides, members of the system Zn1-xCdx Ga2S4 were prepared and their infrared transmission, hardness and thermal stability were measured. Whereas both Zincthiogallate and Cadmiumthiogallate transmitted in the infrared and have reasonable measured values for thermal stability and hardness, there is little improvement achieved by solid solutions.
