Oxide based optical glass materials has important potential material in many applications from fiber optic to sensor due to the high transparency and amourphous structures. The objective of this study is to synthesize the novel optical glass materials based on the bismuth and aluminum contents to be able to determine the physical, chemical and mechanical properties by considering the systematic experimental steps. In this study, Bi2O3-Al2O3 based tellurite optical glasses have been prepared by using conventional melt quenching method as a function of the both Bi2O3 and Al2O3 compositions. There is a strong interactions between the glass former and modifier ions that might effect on the structure and mechanical properties. During the experimental steps, thermal, structural and mechanical properties of the prepared glass materials have been determined considering the DTA/DSC, FT-IR spectroscopy, SEM and Vicker's hardness techniques, respectively. Thermal parameters, like glass transition, T-g, onset, T-x, crystallization, T-p, and melting, T-m, temperatures were obtained by using DTA scan.
