Abstract

Since 1988, it has been demonstrated that metallic glasses can be made in bulk form with diameters larger than several millimeters. At present, several alloy systems with maximum diameters for glass formation exceeding 1 cm are known. As a result, Zr-, Ti-, Fe-, Co-, Ni-, and Cu-based bulk metallic glasses (BMGs) are already in use for magnetic-sensing, chemical, and structural applications. In this article, recently developed BMGs with critical diameters of more than 1 cm are summarized, and some of their industrial applications are reviewed.
