Abstract

We synthesized bulk amorphous alloy systems of Cu43 Zr43Al7X7(X = Be, Ag; numbers indicate at.%), with the objective of simultaneously enhancing the glass-forming ability (GFA) and the plasticity. The alloys not only exhibit high plasticity (∼7%, ∼8%), but also possess enhanced GFA (alloys with 12 and 8 mm diameter). The possible mechanisms underlying this enhanced GFA and plasticity exhibited by these alloys are discussed based on the atomic-packing state and atomistic-scale compositional separation associated with the mixing enthalpy difference. A strategy for designing bulk amorphous alloys with simultaneous improvement in the GFA and the plasticity is proposed from the viewpoint of atomic-packing state and atomistic-scale phase separation.
