In present work we report that the observation of Meyer Neldel rule and crystallization rate constant stability of Se93-xZn2Te5Inx (0 ≤ x ≤ 10) chalcogenide glasses. A strong correlation has been observed between the pre-exponential factor (K0) and activation energy of crystallization (Ec). Such a strong correlation between K0 and Ec indicates that the presence of compensation effect under the non-isothermal crystallization processes. Further, obtained results also demonstrate that the crystallization rate constant stability is higher at 6 at.wt.% of indium.
