The anisotropy of photoconductivity in Au3In5Se9 and Au3Ga5Se9 crystals grown by the Bridgman method have been investigated as a function of temperature in the temperature range of 100 - 420 K. It is shown that the crystals have a wide range of spectral sensitivity of 0.9 - 1.8 eV. The width of the band gaps and their temperature coefficient are determined. The life time of the current carriers are determined at different levels of excitations.
