Paper Abstract

This paper deals with the effect of C, Co, and Cr additions on the surface profile of Fe78 B13Si9 metallic glass at a nanoscopic scale. The seperate addition of the elements was successful in a way that three new metallic films with better properties were produced. The composition of the new films are namely Feg1B13Si35C2, Fe66C018B15Si1, and FeCr2 B16Si5. Furthermore the new films have shown balanced physical and magnetic properties as compared to the Fe78B13Si9 film. Consequently, this study was focused on revealing the three dimensional surface profile of the films in as-received and annealed conditions. The surface profile was determined by a scanning tunneling microscope (STM).
