Longitudinal and shear wave ultrasonic velocities are reported in Se-P glasses over the composition range 0–50 at % P. The glass transition temperaturesTg show maxima at 30 and 50 at % of P, in consonance with earlier data. The bulk modulus shows minima at these compositions, contrary to the expectation of maxima. These are discussed in relation to the formation of compounds at specific compositions and the nature of the covalent bonding in the glasses.
