Summary

The formation of amorphous phases by either rapid solidification or mechanical alloying is well known to occur in Zr-based and Al-based binary or multi-component metallic systems [1-3]. During the mechanical alloying process, intermixed structures with a large fraction of interfacial area are produced in the solid material by plastic deformation. Complete intermixing in the solid state can be achieved by e.g. ball milling of powders or cold rolling of foils. Compared to ball milling, cold rolling of layered elemental foils provides mechanical deformation of the elemental multilayer samples at a smaller strain rate and under controlled conditions at ambient temperatures and pressure.
