Over the past decade, there has been increasing attention in metallic glasses due to their scientific and engineering significance. One particular interest in metallic glasses is the frequent nanocrystallization upon devitrification. However, the full understanding of such nanostructure formation during devitrification remains incomplete. In this thesis, nanocrystallization upon annealing is studied in Zr-based metallic glasses. Quantitative transient nucleation rate data during glass crystallization to an icosahedral quasicrystal phase (i-phase) were obtained for the first time by measuring the crystal density following two-step annealing treatments by transmission electron microscopy. The data fit well to the classical theory of nucleation. The extremely small interfacial free energy (sigma = 0.006 J/m2) between the i-phase and the glass obtained from fits to the nucleation data indicates a significant icosahedral order in the glass. Taken together with high energy X-ray diffraction studies of the glass, these data provide the strongest evidence to date of the significant icosahedral order in metallic glasses
The addition of a few atomic percent of elements can change the glass formation and crystallization behavior significantly in these glasses. We report the discovery of Zr65Cu27Ti8 bulk metallic glasses with diameters up to 1 mm produced by suction casting. The effects of structural relaxation on the glass transition and crystallization kinetics, investigated by differential scanning calorimetry, are discussed. The effects of the addition of small amounts of Ti on the local order in Zr-based metallic glasses were investigated by high energy synchrotron X-ray diffraction and fluctuation electron microscopy. An increasing icosahedral order with increasing Ti content explains the bulk metallic glass formation in the Zr-Cu-Ti alloys. However, this is not true in a related, but more complex, Zr-Ti-Cu-Ni-Al alloy
