Title: Compositional dependence of physical properties in Se-Sb-In glassy system

The growing interest in the investigation of the properties of chalcogenide glasses stems from their potential application as phase change recording media and photoconductive elements in solid state devices.In the present work, the different theoretical parameters viz. coordination number, constraints, number of lone pair electrons, bond energy, heat of atomization, mean bond energy and glass transition temperature for Se{sub 75-x}Sb{sub 25}In{sub x} (x= 0, 1, 3, 5, 7, 9, 11) chalcogenide system have been calculated and their composition variation has been discussed. It has been found that average heat of atomization increases with In content. The glass transition temperature and mean bond energy increases with In. An attempt has been made to explain the varying trend of various parameters with increasing In content.
