Amorphous metallic alloys, relative newcomers to the world of glasses, have properties that are unusual for solid metals. The metallic glasses, which exist in a very wide variety of compositions, combine fundamental interest with practical applications. They also serve as precursors for exciting new nanocrystalline materials. Their magnetic (soft and hard) and mechanical properties are of particular interest. 
Amorphous alloys for electrocatalysis: The significant role of the amorphous alloy structure
Amorphous alloys, also known as metallic glasses, are solid metallic materials having long-range disordered atomic structures. Compared to crystalline alloys, amorphous alloys not only have metallic
Amorphous physics and materials: Interstitialcy theory of condensed matter states and its application to non-crystalline metallic materials
A comprehensive review of a novel promising framework for the understanding of non-crystalline metallic materials, i.e., interstitialcy theory of condensed matter states (ITCM), is presented. The
Formation and Mechanical Properties of Pd-Si Binary Bulk Metallic Glasses
Glassy spherical samples in the diameters up to 10 mm were produced in a binary Pd-Si alloy system. These Pd-Si bulk metallic glasses (BMGs) combine high strength of about 1600 MPa and
Metallic Glasses: A Revolution in Material Science
Metallic glasses represent one kind of advanced material, very popular in recent decades. These materials are very adaptable like plastics for their manufacturability in very complex shapes. TPF
Iron-based bulk metallic glasses
Abstract The current status of research and development in Fe-based bulk metallic glasses (BMGs) is reviewed. Bulk metallic glasses are relatively new materials possessing a glassy structure and
The impact of nanoscale compositional variation on the properties of amorphous alloys
The atomic distribution in amorphous FeZr alloys is found to be close to random, nevertheless, the composition can not be viewed as being homogenous at the nm-scale. The spatial variation of the
Metallic Glasses: A New Approach to the Understanding of the Defect Structure and Physical Properties
The work is devoted to a brief overview of the Interstitialcy Theory (IT) as applied to different relaxation phenomena occurring in metallic glasses upon structural relaxation and crystallization.
Glass Formation in Ni-Zr-(Al) Alloy Systems
Structural and thermal properties of binary () alloys obtained by melt spinning and copper mold casting methods were investigated. The fully amorphous samples in a bulk form cannot be obtained in the
