Abstract: The influence of In content in the Se98-xAg2Inx (x = 0, 2, 4, 6) system of chalcogenide glasses on the physical properties of the glasses were investigated by the authors. The maximum thermal conductivity and thermal diffusivity value was observed for the sample containing 2 at. % In. The microhardness was found to initially decrease upon doping of In for Se; however, it began to slowly increase after a certain In content had been attained. It was concluded that the doping of In into the system resulted in an improvement in the thermomechanical properties of the chalcogenide glasses.
