Glasses with composition 10TeO2.15BaO.(75-x)B2O3.xNiO and 10TeO2.15BaO.(75-x)B2O3.xWO3 (where x= 0 to 1 mol% in steps of 0.2) have been prepared by using a conventional melt-quenching method. The amorphous nature of the samples was ascertained using X-ray diffractometry (XRD). Microhardness measurements were carried out using Zwick 3212 hardness tester fitted with a Vicker’s diamond pyramidal indenter. Microhardness studies revealed that the hardness of the glasses increased with an increase in applied load. Meyer’s index number / work hardening exponent ‘n’ was calculated and found that the material belongs to hard material category.
