    Abstract

    The addition of Ti, Nb, or Ta altered the crystallization behavior of the Zr65Al7.5Cu27.5 glass, and a metastable nanoscaled I-phase was obtained on primary crystallization of these quaternary glasses. The complete substitution of Al by Nb also led to the precipitation of I-phase upon crystallization. Negative heats of mixing between the addition metals and the transition metals of the mother alloy were demonstrated to be not a necessary condition for I-phase formation in the present alloy system.
