Here's something I just read about:
So I'm wondering if this microwave heating of metals can be used for making of glassy metals. Glassy metals are based on rapid cooling of molten metal, causing the glassy molecular structure. From what I've read so far, this has entailed formulating metal alloys with very low melt points. But why can't a glassy metal be made with a very high melt-point, by microwaving an alloy formulation to be molten at very high temp, and quickly chilling it below a melt-point that would itself also be quite high?
This microwave heating of metals sounds like an efficient and controllable way to get metals to very high temperatures very quickly. It also seems like you could cut off that microwave heating very quickly, to facilitate the quick-chilling necessary for glassy metal formation.
