Abstract

The thermal stability of Zr–Ti–Ni–Cu–Be and Pd–Ni–Cu–P multicomponent bulk metallic glasses (BMGs) has been evaluated by their Gibbs free energy of formation, ∆Ga. We found that the tight bonding solute-centred clusters (in which a solute atom is surrounded by many solvent atoms in the first coordination shell with strong solute-solvent interaction), and chemical short-range orders (chemical SRO) have a much more important effect on the thermal stability of multicomponent BMGs, than other clusters and short-range orders. The quasi-linear correlation between crystallization temperature, Tx, and ∆Ga is only valid for multicomponent BMGs with similar chemical SRO, in a narrow composition region. This study could be of importance in understanding the thermal stability and the underlying mechanism of crystallization of multicomponent BMGs.
