Abstract

Starting from the two binary bulk glass formers in the Cu-Zr system, we systematically investigated the compositional dependence of glass formation, thermal, elastic, and mechanical properties in the Cu-Zr-Ag ternary bulk glassy alloys. Both Cu(50-x)Zr50Agx and Cu(64-x)Zr36Agx series show a good combination of high glass-forming ability and high Poisson's ratio. However, compressive plastic deformation was only observed in Cu(50-x)Zr50Agx series and the possible underlying mechanism is discussed.
