Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Bulk metallic glasses and high-entropy alloys are two classes of exotic material systems, which possess desirable properties, such as wear resistance, corrosion resistance, and high strength. The aim of this Special Issue is to publish research articles and reviews on the up-to-date experimental and theoretical results for these types of alloys. Specific topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following: (i) crystallization kinetics, (ii) advanced characterization techniques, (iii) in situ plastic deformation behavior (including serrated flows), (iv) biocompatibility, (v) mechanical behavior at elevated and cryogenic temperatures, (vi) irradiation effects, (vii) machine learning and high-throughput methods, and (viii) links between mechanical behavior and microstructures. The overarching goal of this Special Issue is to provide a comprehensive platform for the dissemination of new findings, while discussing future directions in the fields of bulk metallic glass and high-entropy alloy research.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Metals is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2000 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.

Additive manufacturing allows for the fabrication of large-sized metallic glasses with complex geometries, which overcomes the size limitation due to limited glass-forming ability. To investigate the effect of synthesis parameters on the Mg-based metallic glasses, Mg65Cu20Zn5Y10 was fabricated by laser-based powder bed fusion under different scanning speeds and laser powers. For high energy density, the samples showed severe crystallization and macrocracks, while for low energy density, the samples contained pore defects and unfused powders. Three-dimensionally printed samples were used for the compression test, and the mechanical properties were analyzed by Weibull statistics. Our work identifies proper parameters for 3D printing Mg-based metallic glasses, which provide a necessary, fundamental basis for the fabrication of 3D-printed Mg-based metallic glass materials with improved performance.
