Title: Dispersion of acoustic-like and optic-like vibrational excitations in Ni{sub 2}B metallic glass

Abstract

The dynamic structure factor S(Q, E) of Ni{sub 2}B metallic glass was studied by inelastic neutron scattering in the ranges of momentum transfers 0.7 < {Dirac_h}Q/A{sup -1} < 7, and energy, 2 < E/meV < 70, transfers. The measurements were performed with the IN4 spectrometer (Institut Laue-Langevin (ILL), Grenoble, France) on three samples of the same chemical composition but with different contents of Ni and B isotopes, as a result of which partial contributions were determined. The cuts through S(Q, E) for different values of E and Q demonstrated a characteristic behavior indicating that vibrational excitations, similar to acoustic and optical phonon excitations in crystals, propagate in an amorphous medium in a certain energy and momentum range.

  • We have carried out a systematic study of the spin-wave dispersion relations and the low-temperature magnetization in the amorphous metallic ferromagnets (Fe/sub x/Ni/sub 1-x/)/sub 75/P/sub 16/B/sub 6/Al/sub 3/ for x = 1.0, 0.65, 0.5, and 0.30. In this series the Ni is, to a first approximation, nonmagnetic. The spin-wave measurements were carried out using inelastic-neutron-scattering techniques, the magnetization at finite fields (1.2 and 15 kOe) was measured via a vibrating-sample magnetometer and the temperature dependence of the magnetization at zero field was deduced from the hyperfine field at the Fe sites as measured by Moessbauer techniques. The spin waves followmore » a normal ferromagnetic dispersion relation, h ..omega.. (q) = ..delta.. + Dq/sup 2/ + Eq/sup 4/ + ..., in all materials. The magnetization follows the law M (T) = M/sub o/(1 - BT/sup 3/2/ - ...). The T/sup 3/2/ coefficient B is nearly field independent for the samples with x = 1.0, 0.65, and 0.5. Further the Moessbauer and magnetometer measurements are in close quantitative agreement. We find that for these samples the observed B's are properly accounted for by the measured spin-wave dispersion relations in contrast to previous studies in other magnetic glasses. Anomalous effects are observed in the x = 0.30 sample.« less
  • Inelastic neutron scattering measurements are reported on the amorphous (a) transition-metal--metalloid alloys of a-Ni/sub 82/B/sub 18/, a-Ni/sub 67/B/sub 33/, and the crystalline (c) compound, c-Ni/sub 2/B. The spectra provide information about changes in the vibrational density of states with composition and upon crystallization. The results of the crystalline-to-amorphous comparison for the 67 at. % Ni samples, show dramatic changes in the vibrational spectra, including an increase in the number of states, both at low and high energies, in the amorphous sample. The differences in the high-energy states are attributed to a change in short-range order between the amorphous and crystallinemore » compositions. The similarities between the 67 at. % Ni and 82 at. %Ni samples are consistent with a similar short-range order in the two alloys, as well as comparable transition-metal--transition-metal and transition-metal--metalloid interactions. No evidence for any appreciable, direct metalloid-metalloid bonding in the high-metalloid-content samples has been found.« less
  • A detailed study of the effect of annealing on the internal friction of metallic glass Fe/sub 32/Ni/sub 36/Cr/sub 14/P/sub 12/B/sub -/ measured by the inverted torsion pendulum method is presented. It was found that the glass reaches, after an extended period of annealing, an internal pseudo-equilibrium state as far as the internal friction is concerned, which is a function of the annealing temperature. A change in the annealing temperature results in a reversible change from one such state to another. The authors present a phenomenological model which explains the dependence of the pseudo-equilibrium state upon both the annealing temperature andmore » measuring temperature and the kinetics of the transition from one to another, and discuss its relation to atomic level structural fluctuations.« less
  • Kinetics of crystallization process in a Fe-based metallic glass 2826A (Fe{sub 32}Ni{sub 36}Cr{sub 14}P{sub 12}B{sub 6}) has been studied with the help of differential scanning calorimetry(DSC). It is found that the 2826A metallic glass exhibits two overlapping crystallization peaks. The activation energy for crystallization (E) and the Avrami exponent (n) for the two crystallization peaks have been obtained using the Kolmogorov-Jhonson-Mehl-Avrami (KJMA) equation. The so-obtained values of E and n have been utilized to derive normalized heat flow curves. It has been observed that the theoretical heat flow curves obtained using KJMA equation show large deviations from the experimental curvesmore » for the first peak whereas the curves are in very close agreement for the second peak. This suggests that kinetics of crystallization process during the first peak cannot be described correctly in KJMA formalism.« less
  • We report electron doping effects by Ni in K xFe 2-δ-yNi ySe₂ (0.06 ≤ y ≤ 1.44) single crystal alloys. A rich ground state phase diagram is observed. Thus, a small amount of Ni (~ 4%) suppressed superconductivity below 1.8 K, inducing insulating spin glass magnetic ground state for higher Ni content. With further Ni substitution, metallic resistivity is restored. For high Ni concentration in the lattice the unit cell symmetry is high symmetry I4/ mmm with no phase separation whereas both I4/ m + I4/ mmm space groups were detected in the phase separated crystals when concentration of Nimore » < Fe. The absence of superconductivity coincides with the absence of crystalline Fe vacancy order.« less
