Metallic glasses open a new, exciting, and rapidly expanding field of considerable scientific as well as technological interest. The unique combination of metallic and glassy properties leads to new materials with outstanding mechanical, magnetic and chemical properties. When these desirable features are considered alongside their manufacturing and economic advantages, many possible applications of metallic glasses can be envisaged. For more information the reader is referred to other review papers and conference reports. Pertinent references up to 1977 are listed in reference 1. More recent reviews are covered by the reference 2.
