Chih-Pin Chuang, Peter K. Liaw, Ji-Jung Kai, Wojtek Dmowski, Jia-Hong Huang and Ge-Ping Yu High-Energy X-Ray Diffraction Study of the Inhomogeneous Zr43Cu43Al7Ag7 Bulk-Metallic Glasses Advanced Engineering Materials 15
This paper shows clear evidence that nano-crystalline particles are embedded in the as-cast Zr43Cu43Al7Ag7 bulk metallic glasses with different techniques. The size and the distribution of the nano-crystalline particles in the sample are not uniform and depend on the cooling history of the sample. The comparison of the results from TEM, laboratory X-ray, and high energy synchrotron X-ray suggests that high-energy synchrotron X-ray diffraction is an effective, non-destructive method to characterize the microstructure of an amorphous nano-crystalline composite.
