Positron annihilation lifetime (PAL) and coincidence Doppler broadening (CDB) experiments have been performed to study free volume changes and atomic relaxation behavior in Zr-Cu-Al bulk metallic glass. Zr50Cu40Al10 metallic glass was annealed isothermally at 673 K, which is below the glass transition temperature (Tg). During this annealing, PAL was observed to decrease, indicating a decrease in free volume; whereas, no significant change in CDB spectra was detected. This observation implies that the relaxation below Tg takes place without a change in atomic configuration. As for specimens annealed at 723 K (>Tg) for 100 s and subsequently annealed isothermally at 673 K for 18,000 s, PAL decreased similarly, suggesting a decrease in free volume. In addition, CDB spectra showed a systematic fluctuation of electron momentum distribution, especially in a high momentum region. This indicates that a chemical reordering took place during crystallization process.
