In the present study, the structural, optical and thermal behaviors of GeO2-PbO-CaO-SrO glasses were investigated to achieve the highest optical properties and thermal stability. Accordingly, different 50GeO2-(50-x)PbO-xCaO and 50GeO2-(50-x)PbO-xSrO (x=0, 10, 20) germanate glasses were prepared by the conventional melt and quench technique between two steel sheets. The produced samples were characterized using X-ray diffraction (XRD), differential thermal analysis (DTA), Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) and UV-Vis spectroscopy. Based on the obtained results, the addition of CaO to glass composition reduced the glass phase forming ability as well as optical and thermal behaviors of the prepared glasses. In contrast, the presence of SrO had no destructive effect on the optical properties of the prepared glasses; the highest values of glass transition (580 oC) and crystallization temperature (831 oC) were achieved in the sample containing 20 mole% of SrO.
