Thermal Stability and Relaxation Processes of the Ti-Cu- and Ti-Ni-Based Metallic Glasses


Temperature dependences of magnetic susceptibility for Ti-Cu- and Ti-Ni-based amorphous alloys have been obtained in the temperature range 300–850 K. All investigated alloys are shown to be Pauli paramagnets. Fe and Co impurity atoms possess zero localized moment due to effect of spin moment quenching. Relaxation processes were studied using thermopower measurements. It was shown the thermal stability of investigated alloys is determined predominantly by Nagel-Tauc electronic criterion.
