Abstract

Measured valence-band photoelectron spectra for the transition-metal glasses AxZr100-x (A=Fe,Co,Ni,Cu,Rh,andPd, with x approximately 25) are shown to be in good agreement with self-consistent energy-band state densities for ordered compounds in the AuCu3 (fcc-like) crystal structure. The calculations and measurements both yield high Fermi-level state densities, account for core-level line shapes, and are consistent with the occurrence of superconductivity and with trends in the transition temperatures of glassy alloys of Zr with 3d transition metals. © 1983 The American Physical Society.
