Abstract

Synchrotron-radiation studies allowed continuous acquisition of X-ray diffraction spectra for binary Pd81Si19 bulk metallic glass forming alloy in the glassy, crystalline and liquid state. Such an investigation allowed determination of structural changes in the liquid and glassy states using real-space radial RDF(R) and atomic pair PDF(R) distribution functions. Crystallization behavior of this alloy was also studied by conventional X-ray diffractometry, transmission electron microscopy and differential scanning calorimetry in isochronal and isothermal mode.
