In the present study we investigate the stability of Cu50Zr 45Al5 and Ni59Ti16Zr 20Sn5 glassy powders and the formation of the bulk metallic glassy samples by microwave heating in a single mode cavity (915 MHz) in the alternating magnetic field maximum. Metallic glasses exhibit low viscosity at temperatures close to the glass-transition which allows for the processing of glassy powders. Microwave heating being a volumetric heating has significant advantages over conventional heating in materials processing, such as substantial energy savings, high heating rates and process cleanness.
