Bulk glasses from the systems (AsSe)1—xAgx and (As2Se3)1—xAgx have been prepared by the melt-quenching technique. Basic physico-chemical characteristics like density, microhardness, and compactness have been investigated. The correlation between the composition and the properties of the AsSeAg glasses is established and comprehensively discussed.
