We examined the solidification morphology and structure of arc-melted Zr50Cu40Al10 glass-forming alloys. Since the crystal growth rate is much lower than the velocity of isothermal plane of glass transition temperature (Tg), arc-melted Zr50Cu 40Al10 alloy sometimes reveals glassy phase at finally solidified region (top-side) after crystal growth (bottom side). Vitrification in front of the crystalline solidification interface of arc-melted Zr 50Cu40Al10 alloy Zr can be seen when the crystal phase is an Al-supersaturated B2-type ZrCu phase.
