Metallic glass is essentially an alloy of the future. Alloys tend to behave and look like metals and their atomic structure consists of rigid geometric patterns. Normally, a few metals can be mixed together so that the ideal properties of each metal are ‘added’ together to make a ‘super-metal.’ Metallic glass, on the other hand, does not have a rigid geometric pattern, but instead, atomic structure which is disordered much like that of glass.
