Structural Relaxation Process in CuHfTi Amorphous Alloys


Article Preview

The aim of this research is to clarify a quantitative evaluation in the structural relaxation processes focusing on the activation energy in Cu based amorphous alloys. The activation energy for structural relaxation process in a metal type amorphous CuHfTi ternary alloys, with cross sections of typically 0.03 mm x 2.0 mm, prepared by chill-block melt spinning has been investigated by Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC) with a cyclically heating technique. Activation energies for structural relaxation with a spatial quantity in amorphous materials have been discussed by use of a relaxed ratio function that depends on annealing temperature and time. In the present work, the distributions for the Activation Energy Spectrum (AES) were observed almost 152 kJmol-1 (1.58 eV). Another result has been also established that the “reversible” AES model energy distribution though the cyclically structure relaxation occurs even in amorphous Cu60Hf20Ti20 alloy.
