Bulk metallic glasses (BMGs) have long garnered interest for high-performance spacecraft components due to their superlative mechanical and wear properties. The metastable nature of BMGs suggest that the properties change with respect to thermal history. To qualify for space flight, spacecraft components are subject to a series of heat treatments for sterilization and planetary protection, and thus may influence the properties of the BMG components from the as-produced state. In this talk, the results from experiments to study the effect of the thermal history, such as differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), electrostatic levitation (ESL), and direct measurement of performance of BMG parts after various annealing profiles, will be discussed.
