Undoped polycrystalline AgGaSe2 crystals were successfully grown at a low temperature (700°C) using a hot-press method. The sizes of the samples were 2 cm in diameter. The grain size was approximately 55 nm. The presence of lattice defects such as Se vacancies and/or Ag interstitials may lead to an enhancement in electrical conductivity.
