The electrical measurements were performed on Ge20Te72In8-<br>xSnx Chalcogenide glass alloy with x = 0, 2, 4, and 6. The dark conductivity (σd) increases with the increase in temperature in all the <br>samples under the experiment. Observations of data were made at low (300 – 335K), medium (335 – 365K), and high temperatures <br>(365 – 400K) across three distinct regions regarding electrical conductivity. For each of the three conduction regions, the factor that <br>precedes the exponent and the effective energies were calculated using electrical conductivity measurements as a function of <br>temperature. It was found that all of them were affected by an increase in the value of Sn. A numerical analysis of the conductivity <br>equation was also carried out for the densities of the energy for the extended states, localized states, and at the Fermi level. It has <br>been observed that all of them change with the change in the value of Sn</p> Laheeb A. Mohammed, Zainab J. Neamah, Anaam W. Watan, Kareem Ali Jasim, Auday H.
