Abstract:

Amorphous metals is a general term that refers to a class of solid metallic materials whose diffraction pattern shows no sharp reflections. When they are formed continuously from a melt by rapid quenching usually around 1,000,000 Ks -1 they can be called metallic glasses. They can also be prepared by vapor, sputter, or electro-deposition, or even by ion-bombardment. Where the same metallic alloy has been prepared in amorphous form both by rapid quenching and by one of the other deposition techniques, the structure and many of the properties turn out to be rather insensitive to the method preparation.
