    Results of measurement of thermal expansion coefficient (From 50 degree C to the softening temperature) are reported for eight glass compositions of the Ge-Se-Te system. For the (Gese2)100-2xsexTex glasses, an increase of Tg and of DxB5; is seen with decreasing SeTe content. For (Gese2)22.33se30-xTex glasses, xB5;, Tg and DxB5; are invariant with composition. The results obtained presently, when examined along with those obtained for other chalcogenide glasses, indicate that chalcogenide glasses are not necessarily in a state of isofree volume during glass transition. Values ranging from 0.024 to 0.167 are obtained13; for the free volume of some chalcogenide glasses.
