Fractal network dimension determining the relation between the strength of bulk metallic glasses and the glass transition temperature Academic Article uri icon


  • [Ma, Nat. Mater. 8, 30 (2009)] have uncovered the fractal dimension D f =2.31 associated with the medium-range order in a variety of bulk metallic glasses, reflected in the first sharp diffraction peak q1 determined from neutron and x-ray measurements. Here, based on the proposal in this journal of [Yang, Appl. Phys. Lett. 88, 221911 (2006)], which related the strength σy of bulk metallic glasses to the glass transition temperature Tg, we show that the product q1Df σy is linear in Tg. © 2009 American Institute of Physics.
