Abstract

Abstract The effects of small amounts of Si on the glass-forming ability, glass transition and crystallization behaviors of a Ti 40Zr 10Cu 36Pd 14 bulk glassy alloy were investigated. The addition of Si caused the decrease of glass-forming ability and the increase of the supercooled liquid region. The fragility of the alloys containing Si was higher than that of the Si-free alloy. In the glass transition process, both generation and annihilation of free volumes are suppressed by the addition of 1–3 at% Si. The activation energy for crystallization increases with increasing Si content, indicating the improvement of thermal stability. The crystallization structure of the alloys containing Si contents less than 4% consisted of six phases of CuTi 2, Ti, Cu 8Zr 3, Cu 4Ti 3, TiZr and PdTi 2.
