While amorphous alloys are usually fabricated by fast cooling the melt, alternative path can be through solid-state amorphization by severe plastic deformation. Since the mechanisms of the amorphous formation during fast-cooling and severe plastic deformation are quite different, the difference in the structures and various properties of the resulting amorphous alloys is worth investigating. In the present study, severe plastic deformation by high-pressure torsion (HPT) was utilized to induce amorphization starting from crystalline Zr-Cu-Al alloys. The thermal properties and mechanical property of the resulting sample will be compared to that of the amorphous counterpart produced by rapid solidification.
