There is much current work on metallic glasses (MGs). The field is making rapid advances and has opened up questions of fundamental scientific interest. Metallic glasses are known to suffer from poor formability. Among other methods of improving the mechanical properties of MGs, introducing deformable crystalline phases into MGs is beneficial for enhancing the plastic compliance of MGs. The definition of the principal phase transformations (on heating and on cooling) underlying the feasibility of such a method is the focus of the deposited in situ high-energy XRD data carried out at Deutsches Elektronen-Synchrotron DESY, Hamburg, Germany. This archive entry contains the temporal evolution of the equilibrium and metastable phases on flash-annealing (heating and cooling) and during containerless solidification via electromagnetic levitation with an unprecedented timescale of ~4 ms.
