Electrical resistivity, dynamical Young's modulus, internal friction, calorimetry, Mössbauer spectroscopy and electron microscopy studies of melt quenched Ni80-xFexP20 (x=0,1,3,5,10 and 20) amorphous alloys are reported. A significant composition dependence of the thermal relaxation is observed which is explained by substantial changes in the electronic structure on alloying.
