Metallic Glasses - Amorphous Metallic Alloys _New Video posted to my Materials Science wall -

 Metallic glass, amorphous alloy energy storage and restitution is compared to a traditional crystalline alloy by dropping a steel ball bearing similtaneously on each type of alloy.

The experimental demonstration is shown in an entertaining way in the video just added to my video wall - widget above. In fact this video is also a window to 16 others. So stay tuned and watch all 17 demos.

An excellent souce of ideas for the innovator.


 A full description from the basic ideas which differentiate metals from glasses through to some of the most recent research on metallic glasses, are described in simple terms for the general reader as well as the material scientist.


Aspects such as corrosion resistance, strength, toughness and energy storage are described in quite simple terms for the general public, and the technical minded in the article entitled
