Title: High pressure high temperature devitrification of Fe 78B 13Si 9 metallic glass with simultaneous x-ray structural characterization

Abstract

Changes in bulk crystallization behavior following devitrification at high pressure are investigated for a Fe 78B 13Si 9 composition metallic glass using in-situ energy dispersive x-ray powder diffraction. Crystallization with time was evaluated for a series of measurements to a maximum pressure of 5.63 ± 0.15 GPa for the Fe 78B 13Si 9 glass. Pressure was found to strongly affect onset bulk crystallization temperature T x. Here, crystallization at each pressure was found to progress in two stages. In the first stage, α-Fe precipitates and in the second Fe 2B forms while α-Fe continues to crystallize. Complementary high pressure room temperature studies were conducted.
