Cu-based bulk amorphous alloy with larger glass-forming ability and supercooled liquid region

Fu, H. M. and Zhang, H. F. and Wang, H. and Hu, Z. Q. (2008) Cu-based bulk amorphous alloy with larger glass-forming ability and supercooled liquid region. Journal of Alloys and Compounds, 458 (1-2). pp. 390-393. ISSN 0925-8388


The glassy rod with a maximum sample thickness of 11 mm and larger supercooled liquid region of 108 K was successfully fabricated when substituting Cu with minor amount of Ag in the Cu-Zr-Al-Gd alloy system. The value of γ reaches a maximum of 0.418 for the Cu45.5Zr45Al7Gd2Ag0.5 bulk metallic glass (BMG) alloy. The high glass-forming ability (GFA) and larger supercooled liquid region are discussed from atomic size, negative mixing heat among constituent elements and thermodynamics.
