The background image confirms the irregular amorphous structure of a bulk metallic glass in a false-color transmission electron micrograph (scale: 10 nanometer horizontally across the page). Atomic rearrangements at the glass transition were studied in real time by in-situ high energy X-ray diffraction. A two-dimensional pattern showing the typical broad rings scattered by the amorphous material is represented in the center, from which average atomic distances can be concluded accurately. Further details can be found in the article by D. D. Qu, K.-D. Liss et. al. on page 861.
