    We characterized AgInS 2 thin films prepared by vacuum evaporation. In the case of thin films annealed at 400 °C, diffraction peaks were observed only for the chalcopyrite AgInS 2 phase. The chemical composition of the thin films annealed at 400 °C was 26.5 at% Ag, 23.8 at% In, and 49.7 at% S. PL spectra of the AgInS 2 thin films at 10.7 K showed peaks at 1.70, 1.80, and 1.83 eV. The PL peak at1.80 eV was attributed to sulfur deficiency.
