We report the use of microsecond current pulses to produce an amorphous metal alloy. Starting materials consisted of electron beam deposited films of elemental crystalline zirconium and nickel layers with a composition modulation wavelength of 46 nm, a total thickness of about 2.5 μn, and an average composition of Zr38Ni62 deposited onto sapphire substrates. Current pulses had a total ring time of several microseconds and were produced with a low inductance capacitor and a spark gap switch. Integration of current traces showed that 85% of the energy was deposited into the sample within 2 microseconds. The energy in the pulses could be controlled in a range where their effect on the films went from no visible change to total vaporization. Pulses with a peak current in the kiloampere range produced melting in 1 cm wide samples. The cooling rate following this treatment was sufficient to produce amorphous material. We report structural changes resulting from rapid melting and resolidification as well as results of a search for solid state transformations resulting from current pulses below the melting threshold.
