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. 

Review of the Recent Development in Metallic Glass and Its Composites

Metallic glasses are known for their mechanical properties but lack plasticity. This could be prevented by combining them with other materials or by inducing a second phase to form a composite. These

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

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.

Recent Applications of Amorphous Alloys to Design Skeletal Catalysts

Amorphous alloys are still attracting great attention in the field of catalysis despite the fact that they have been investigated since the 1950s. One of the reasons why amorphous alloys have been ...
