Abstract

The coexistence of high Fe content and high glass-forming ability (GFA) has been earnestly desired from academia to industry. We report a novel Fe76Si9B10P5 bulk metallic glass with an unusual combination of high magnetization of 1.51 T due to high Fe content as well 1 as high GFA leading to a glassy rod with a diameter of 2.5 mm despite not containing any glass-forming metal elements. This alloy composed of familiar and low-priced elements, also exhibiting very excellent magnetic softness, has a great advantage for engineering and industry, and thus should make a contribution to energy saving and conservation of earth's resources and environment.
