The studies on the micro-hardness of ChGs provide useful information regarding their straightforward involvement in the fabrication of sensors, fibers, and other optical elements for direct use in infrared optics. This work deals with the mechanical response of the glassy Se90In10 alloy under the influence of additives (Sn, Ag, Sb, and Ge). For this, we have determined the micro-hardness of all glassy alloys. Using the values of Vickers hardness (Hv), glass transition temperature (Tg), and present glasses, we have calculated the other significant thermo-mechanical parameters. The effect of Sn, Ag, Sb, and Ge additives on the micro-hardness of glassy Se90In10 alloy is also discussed.
