The crystallization of metallic glasses has been studied quite extensively using differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) technique.
Most methods rely on isokinetic hypothesis for the kinetic analysis of crystallization for which the choice of a reliable
model is very important. Due to inherent uncertainty in the determination of kinetic parameters, the model-free isoconversional
analytical techniques were proposed. However, these isoconversional methods are scarcely used for metallic glasses. In the
present work, the crystallization kinetics of Fe67Co18B14Si1 metallic glass through both isoconversional and isokinetic methods has been investigated and attention has been focused on
the relative applicability of the two methods.
