Frustration and Order in Rapidly Cooled Metals
The first metallic glass was produced in 1960 by Duwez and co-workers  by rapidly cooling a molten alloy of gold and silicon. Metallic glasses have since then been created in large numbers of simple metal, transition metal and metalloid systems by a variety of ingenious methods which achieve cooling rates of over a million degrees per second. The new metallic materials so produced have proved to be of considerable importance for their unique magnetic, mechanical and corrosion-resistance properties.
