Commercial Zr44Ti11 Cu10Ni10 Be25 bulk metallic glass (Vitreloy 1b) disk was subjected to extreme plastic deformation by high-pressure torsion at room temperature. Two-dimensional mapping by high-intensity synchrotron x-ray diffraction in the plane of the shear deformation reveals no evidence of nanocrystallization; however average effective volume changes as a function of the deformation can be evaluated.
