■ AbstractMetallic glass can be considered as a new type of metallic materials since it has extraordinary structural and functional properties when compared with corresponding crystalline metallic materials. Metallic glass has promising properties such as high yield strength, hardness, and elastic strain limit, along with relatively high fracture toughness, fatigue resistance, and corrosion resistance. Metallic glass also exhibits good electrical and magnetic properties, so metallic glass has a great potential to be used as a part in various types of devices. Especially, metallic glass has excellent soft magnetic properties (low coercivity Hc, modest anisotropy constant Ku,and almost zero magnetostrictionλ). Based on the recent exciting developments in enhancing the properties of the metallic glass, the possible functional application of bulk metallic glass will be presented.
