    • Abstract

       

      Amorphous Zr50Al15−𝑥Ni10Cu25Y𝑥 powders were fabricated by mechanical alloying at a low rotation speed from commercial pure element powders. The beneficial effect of Al partially substituted by Y in Zr50Al15Ni10Cu25 on glass-forming ability was investigated. The as-milled powders were characterized by X-ray diffraction and transmission electron microscopy. The results show that partial substitution of Al by Y can improve the glass-forming ability of Zr50Al15Ni10Cu25 alloy. Thermodynamic calculation of equivalent free energy shows that Zr50Al13.8Ni10Cu25Y1.2 alloy has the highest glass-forming ability, which is in good agreement with the report of orthogonal experiments.
