Bulk Metallic Glassy Composites with Excellent Electrical Conductivity and Enhanced Plasticity Fabricated by Spark Plasma Sintering
Large-size Ni-based bulk metallic glass (BMG) composite samples exhibiting simultaneously high strength, enhanced plasticity and improved conductivity were produced by spark plasma sintering of mixed glassy powder blended with high-conductive Cu particulates. This opens new possibilities for the applications of the BMG composites as functional and structural materials.
