Abstract: A chalcogenide glass was prepared and doped with carbon nanotubes (CNTs) in an effort to increase the electrical and thermal conductivity of the glass. The glass that was used in this study was Se85Te10Ag5 which was prepared by melt-quenched method. CNTs were added to the glass at 3 and 5 wt. % and the properties of the composite glasses were compared with those of the pure chalcogenide glass. It was found that doping of Se85Te10Ag5 glass with CNTs increased the electrical and thermal conductivities, as well as the microhardness in comparison with pure Se85Te10Ag5 glass.
