The effect that hydrostatic pressure has on the decomposition behavior in Cu54Ni6Zr22Ti18bulk metallic glass (BMG) alloy was assessed using samples, which were isothermally annealed in the supercooled liquid region (SLR) with and without application of hydrostatic pressure. During subsequent annealing for the thermal analysis, the samples annealed under hydrostatic pressure displayed a slower crystallization process in the SLR, which is attributed to a retarded compositional decomposition of the BMG alloy under pressure. © 2008 Elsevier B.V.
