Using the Vickers indentation method, a critical plastic deformation energy, Ec, of collapse was proposed to be a convenient measurement to determine the ductility. It was found that the randomization increases the Ec value of a brittle Fe-Si-B alloy glass which is cooled slowly. Namely, the randomization enhances the ductility of the metallic glass.
