Completely glassy thin films of Zr–Al–Cu–Ni exhibiting a large supercooled liquid region (ΔTx = 95 K), very smooth surface (Ra = 0.2 nm) and high value of Vickers hardness (Hv = 940) were deposited by sputtering. The micro/nano-patterning ability of these films is demonstrated by focused ion beam etching (smallest pattern ~12 nm), as well as by the imprint lithography technique (smallest feature ~34 nm). These glassy films having very good mechanical and chemical properties, combined with superb nano-patterning ability, integrateable with silicon integrated circuit technology, are promising for fabrication of a wide range of two- or three-dimensional components for future nano-electromechanical systems.
