Abstract

The "fragile"-"strong glass" transition in Al-based alloys is observed as a function of Sc content. The Sc-bearing alloys suffer glass transition as well as Sc-free Al0.84Y0.09Ni 0.05Co0.02 alloy, however, the value of ΔC p decreases drastically and comes within the variation of the baseline at higher than 2 at. % of Sc. The studied glasses are free from pre-existing nuclei.
