After a review on the applications of positron annihilation methods an example is presented of recent results as they apply to studying structural imperfections in the glassy phase. It is concluded that positron trapping is caused in the amorphous phase by the substantial amount of free volume; furthermore, a correlation is indicated between the positron-trapping and the quenching rate used in producing the amorphous metallic glass samples.
