Abstract: The Transient Plane Source (TPS) technique was used to evaluate the thermal transport characteristics (such as thermal conductivity, thermal diffusivity, specific heat per unit volume) in multi-component Se78-xTe20Sn2Pbx glasses at room temperature. From the experimental results, it was noted that thermal conductivity decreased with lead (Pb) content in the ternary Se78Te20Sn2 alloy. This can be explained in terms of the rise in density, molar volume, and mean bond energy of the quaternary alloy.
