Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (NSSE, volume 118)


The existence of localized defects is one of the key concepts for the understanding of many properties of crystalline materials. The verification and identification of similar defects in amorphous alloys will possibly facilitate the interpretation of the specific properties like diffusion, embrittlement, corrosion, magnetic hardening in these alloys. Amorphous metallic alloys are metastable solids with atomic arrangements which are not spatially periodic. Metallic glasses can be produced in a variety of ways: evaporation, sputtering, or fast quenching from the liquid state.
