Abstract
Solid state amorphization (SSA) can be achieved in crystalline materials including metal alloys, intermetallics, semiconductors, minerals and molecular crystals. Even though the mechanisms may differ in different materials, the crystalline to amorphous transformation occurs when the crystal reaches a metastable state in which its free energy is higher than that of the amorphous phase. SSA is observed in metal alloys because of interdiffusion of the crystalline elements during mechanical milling, thermal reaction of vapor deposited thin metal layers, mixture of metal powders and flat rolling of alternating thin metal sheets, and hydrogen reaction. We investigate ...
