Kinetics of crystallization of a Fe74Co10B16 glass
Differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) technique has been employed to study the crystallization kinetics of a Fe74Co10B16 glass. Crystallization of Fe74Co10B16 glass is known to occur in two distinct stages. It was possible to separate out the isothermal kinetics of both the crystallization stages through a thermal treatment scheme in the DSC. The crystallization processes are interpreted in the light of the kinetic data obtained.
