Abstract

Fast-scanning calorimetry was applied to retrieve the viscosity of supercooled liquids of the Zr-based bulk metallic glasses (BMGs) Vitreloy 105 and AMZ4 for temperatures from standard glass transition down to ~0.78Tg/T. Characteristic temperatures of the glass transition were translated into viscosity values by means of composition-independent shift factors based on the equivalency between structural relaxation and viscous flow. The extended MYEGA model with a fragile term dominant at high-temperatures and a strong term dominant at low-temperatures describes the entire viscous range. The analysis revealed that Vitreloy 105 and AMZ4 are strong liquids for log10η ≥ 4.9–5.5. In turn, the fragile-to-strong crossover is centred on 0.69Tg/T for Vitreloy 105 and on 0.66Tg/T for AMZ4. The extent of the fragile-to-strong transition was found to be larger for Vitreloy 105 than for AMZ4, while their values agreed well with the inverse relation between transition factor and kinetic fragility of the strong regime established for BMG-forming liquids.
