The phase that appeared in the pseudo-binary LiGaO2-ZnO system was investigated by powder X-ray diffraction (XRD), selected area electron diffraction by transmission electron microscopy (TEM-SAD) and Raman spectroscopy, especially focusing on the 0.5(LiGaO2) 1/2·0.5ZnO composition. A new quaternary wurtzite-derived Zn2LiGaO4 phase was found in this system. The TEM-SAD indicated that the phase possesses an incommensurately modulated ordering. The optical energy band gap of Zn2LiGaO4 was determined to be ̃4.0 eV from its diffuse reflectance and photoluminescence spectra; and it was suggested that the Zn2LiGaO4 was a direct semiconductor.
