Golf is of course the most important thing you can do with new materials technology.Originally posted by enigma
Anybody have any cool ideas how it can be used?
Actually, golf is in the site name because they sell pretty good drivers. Hype aside, I think the materials science is a nice innovation.Originally posted by enigma
Ah! The golf is in the site name because of their amazing demo. If you go into the site, and look to the left, it shows a clip of it.
The atoms in an amorphous material are not arranged in any ordered structure, rather they have a tightly-packed, but random arrangement. Amorphous materials are formed by cooling the liquid material quickly enough to prevent crystallization; the atoms do not have time to arrange themselves into an ordered structure. Liquidmetal® is an amorphous alloy (also known as a metallic glass) containing five elements, with the elemental composition is 41.2% zirconium, 22.5% beryllium, 13.8% titanium, 12.5% copper, and 10.0% nickel.
