We performed high-temperature microcompression tests on micron-sized pillar samples fabricated from Au49Ag5.5Pd2.3Cu26.9Si16.3 metallic glass near the glass transition temperature to investigate the homogeneous deformation behavior. Samples were invariably deformed uniformly. The strength was observed to decrease with increasing temperature and decreasing strain rate. Plastic flow behavior can be described by a shear transition zone model. The activation energy and the size of the basic flow unit were both deduced and compared favorably with the theory.

    It is difficult to formulate the statistical mechanical theory of liquids and glasses, because phonons, which are the basis for the statistical mechanics of lattice dynamics in crystals, are strongly scattered and have a very short lifetime in liquids and glasses. Instead computer simulation and...
