Amorphous alloys, more commonly referred to as metallic glasses, represent a striking advance in inorganic materials technology of recent times. While the probable atomic arrangements in noncrystalline alloys have aroused scientific curiosity, their unusual mechanical strength, attractive magnetic properties and remarkable corrosion resistance have excited technological interest. This report describes the progress of research at Varanasi on the following aspects: adaptation, innovation and development of techniques for rapid solidification, study and refinement of structural models, calculation of thermodynamic quantities, evaluation of strength and corrosion resistance and studies of glass to crystal transition.
