The optical properties of a new family of x TiO2 (65-x) B2O335BaO glasses are investigated. The optical parameters such as average single bond strength, optical electronegativity, optical energy gap, refractive index, optical basicity and third order nonlinear susceptibility are discussed with respect to titanium concentration. Gamma ray transmission and the parameters which affect these processes; attenuation coefficients and half value layer, were studied using the mixture rule of the XCOM program, in the energy range (1 keV-100 GeV). The results obtained probably provide good biased for prediction of new nonlinear materials and can be used as an environmentally friendly substitute for lead for industries besides their radiation-shielding property.
