Topic Information

Dear Colleagues,

For this Special Topic, we plan to publish articles on recent advances in the field of metallic glass, covering (i) glass formation kinetics, liquid fragility, and thermal forming; (ii) thermal annealing and nanocalorimetry; (iii) synchrotron X-ray radiation; (iv) hydrogen storage and conversion; (v) electro/photocatalytic/corrosion activity; (vi) the influence of microalloying and nanocrystallization on magnetic/electrical behavior; (vii) mechanical properties, from a nano- to global-scale; (viii) high-resolution electron microscopy studies; (ix) biostability, cell interactions, and antimicrobial properties; (x) finite element modeling and (ab initio) molecular dynamics simulations of synthesis, processing, and chemical activity; (xi) additive manufacturing; (xii) miscellaneous properties on different length-scales (acoustics, optics, thin-film coatings, powder processing, etc.) of metallic glasses; (xiii) metallic glass in situ and ex situ composites and their properties; and (xiv) recent applications of metallic glasses.

We invite researchers from different disciplines to submit original research papers, reviews, short communications, and summaries of developments.

In this paper, the partially crystallized Zr70Cu13.5Ni8.5Al8 bulk metallic glasses (BMGs) were prepared, and their superplastic deformation ability in the supercooled liquid region was studied via compression over a wide range of strain rates from 5 × 10−4 s−1 to 1 × 10−2 s−1. It has been found that the superplastic deformation behavior of the BMGs is strongly dependent on the strain rate and temperature. The flow behavior of the BMGs transformed from Newtonian fluid to non-Newtonian fluid with the increase in the strain rate and the decrease in temperature. Based on the high-temperature compression results, a thermalplastic forming map was constructed, and the optimal superplastic forming parameters were obtained. Then, gears were successfully extruded using part of the optimal thermal processing parameters. Further studies showed that high-temperature extrusion induced the crystallization of the BMGs, which increased the microhardness of the gears. Full article

This study focuses on time-resolved surface modifications of a single-phase Ti25Zr25Nb15V15Ta20 high-entropy alloy (HEA) when immersed in 0.9 wt% NaCl and phosphate-buffer solutions (PBS) at 37 °C. A remarkable transition from high ionic diffusion to electron conduction was observed in PBS, whereas the existing conductivity in NaCl solution was further enhanced after 3 h of exposure. During in-situ testing, NaCl improved passivation conceived by the decrease in passivation-current density and increase in Tafel slope. Heterogeneously dispersed oxide particles with NaCl could have accounted for the moderate increase in conductivity while not affecting the capacitive behavior. The Tafel slope decreased after 2 h of immersion in PBS linked to K+ and P−3 accumulation on the surface. The pronounced change in the post-PBS treated sample was also revealed by a four-fold increase in HEA-electrolyte resistance. A visible decrease in the constant-phase-element parameter of the HEA-electrolyte interface after long-term PBS immersion indicated a rise in electrode conductivity and ionic build-up on the surface. The findings suggest that compared to PBS, the selected HEA has a faster passive-layer formation in NaCl with smaller changes in interface resistivity upon long-term immersion, which is promising for enhanced protein-adsorption rates and loading amount.
