Rapid solidification of metallic melts at a rate ≳ 105°K/sec has gained considerable interest for casting non-equlibrium crystalline structures in general and metallic glasses in particular. Of the variety of techniques used for rapid solidification, melt-spinning and melt-extraction are widely used. This paper describes the design and development of a melt-spinning technique in our laboratory. Optimization of spinning parameters for smooth and continuous ribbons is discussed. Glassy ribhons of Cu-Zr and Pd-Ge alloys have been made under optimized conditions. A brief account of some of the structural and electronic properties of these glasses is illustrated.
