Towards nano-injection molding (2012)

Abstract Bulk metallic glasses (BMGs), having no limiting microstructure, can bemachined or thermoplastically-formed with sub-micron precision while stillretaining often-desirable metallic properties such as high compressive strength.These novel materials thus have enormous potential for use as multi-scale toolsfor high-volume manufacturing of polymeric MEMS and information storagedevices. Here we show the manufacture of a prototype BMG injection moldingtool capable of producing cm-long polymeric components, with sub-micronsurface features.
