Scope & Topics

Metallic glasses are amorphous alloys that possess supercooled liquid region (SCLR) and thus glassy state. They are fabricated by rapid quenching of alloys with sluggish crystallization kinetics from their molten state. Their unique short range order (SRO) structure, superior mechanical properties and corrosion resistance over conventional engineering alloys has drawn a lot of attention over the last decades -- Researchers had explored a wide range of applications in fields from structural material, bio-medical implants and Micro-Electro-Mechanical System (MEMS) etc. In recent years, metallic glasses are intensively studied in the form of coatings and thin-films, which brings up a lot of novel discovery in the surface science and properties of metallic glasses. This symposium covers discussions on the latest progress and discoveries on the structural modeling, property characterization, alloy design and applications of metallic glasses. Symposium topics will include (but not limited to):

  1. Alloy design and crystallization kinetics of metallic glasses
  2. Structural characterizations and modeling of metallic glasses
  3. Deformation and fracture behavior in metallic glasses
  4. Cross-disciplinary applications
  5. Metallic glass thin film and coating
