    Novel light-weight materials of advanced performance are now experiencing global interest due to the strong need to reduce energy consumption in land and air transportation sectors. Here we report on a novel magnesium alloy matrix composite material. The reinforcing phase in the magnesium alloy is a fine dispersion of metallic glass particles. The composite is sintered from the powder mixture of the alloy and metallic glass at a temperature slightly above the glass transition Tg of the metallic glass particles that is close to the Mg alloy's solidus temperature. At the compaction temperature, the metallic glass acts as a soft liquid-like binder but upon cooling it becomes the hard reinforcement component of the composite. Processing, microstructure and mechanical properties of the composite are discussed.
