The Structural Stability of the Fe36Co36Si19B5Nb4 Bulk Amorphous Alloy

Open access


In this paper, the results of the investigation into the fractured surface microstructure of the amorphous samples of Fe36Co36B19Si5Nb4 in the shape of rods of diameters: 1 mm, 2 mm and 3 mm in the as-cast state are presented. The samples were prepared by injection of molten alloy into cooled copper dies. The process of diffusion in the investigated material has a different speed depending on the temperature gradient within the volume of the rod. The atomic diffusion leads to the creation of different zones within the rod fracture: the zone in contact with the copper die, the intermediate fracture zone, and the zone in the vicinity of the rod core; the three zones have been found to exhibit different amorphous structures.
