The technique of rapidly quenching metals and alloys from the melt developed in 1960 by Duwez and his collaborators has gained wide popularity. The extremely high cooling rates (106 to 108° C/sec) attainable with these techniques have yielded supersaturated solid solutions, non-equilibrium crystalline phases and also amorphous alloys. The fascinating results obtained so far, particularly the unusual structures and properties of the new products, are extensively reviewed in this article.
