Elastic and mechanical properties of transparent nanocrystallized KNbGeO5 glass were investigated. Electronic polarizability, shear modulus, bulk modulus, Young's modulus, Debye temperature, Vickers hardness and deformation energies during nanoindentation increased due to the nanocrystallization. The values of Poisson's ratio and fractal bond connectivity of nanocrystallized glasses were the same as those of the base glass.
