Abstract

Metallic glasses exhibit low viscosity in a temperature range between the glass transition and the crystallization temperature, a feature that allows successful sintering of glassy powders. Microwave heating, being volumetric, has significant advantages over conventional heating in materials processing, such as substantial energy savings, high heating rates and process cleanliness. In the present study, we investigate the stability of Cu50Zr45Al5 glassy powders and the formation of a bulk two-component metallic glassy-crystal sample by microwave heating in a single-mode cavity (915 MHz) in an alternating magnetic field.
