The quasiternary system Ag2SeCdSeIn2Se3 was investigated by differential thermal analysis, XRD, microstructure analysis and microhardness measurements. From the results of the investigation and literature data, six vertical sections, the isothermal section at 820 K and the liquidus surface projection were constructed. The nature and the temperatures of the invariant processes in the Ag2SeCdSeIn2Se3 system were determined. The existence of a quaternary compound, Ag0.4Cd0.4In6.3Se10, was established; the compound melts incongruently at 1055 K.
