Amorphous alloy powders of the types NiZr, CoZr, FeZr, and CuZr are produced by mechanical alloying from crystalline elemental powders. The alloying and amorphization process is monitored by microstructural investigations, x-ray diffraction, and, where applicable, by magnetization measurements. The crystallization temperatures, determined by differential scanning calorimetry, are comparable to those measured for rapidly quenched and solid state reacted amorphous metals of the same compositions.
