In the present work, three optically transparent tungsten niobate tellurite glasses with compositions of (90-x)TeO2-10Nb2O5-xWO3 (x = 0, 6, 12 mol%) were synthesized by conventional melt quenching technique. For all these three glass samples, the structural and the compositional dependence of different physical parameters such as density, molar volume and ionic packing density have been analyzed. It been observed that the amorphous nature of the samples has been confirm by X-ray diffraction analysis. The physical properties of the glasses were evaluated and the change in density ( ), molar volume ( ) and ionic packing density ( ) in these glasses indicates the effect of WO3 different content registered on the glasses structure. The highest refractive indexes value 2.171 at 632.8 nm was measured for 78TeO2–10Nb2O5–12WO3 glass. It is found that the addition of WO3 concentration to TeO2-Nb2O5 glass system increase the value of density, molar volume as well as ionic packing density. The refractive index value of the glass increase with tendency for small optical energy band gap.
