(Figure Presented) Extraordinary flexible, very long, and individual amorphous nanowires composed of metallic glasses are produced by the drawing process based on superplastic deformation above the glass transition temperature. The outstanding mechanical properties of metallic glasses including low Young's modulus and high strength can be inherited in nanowire.
