These novel materials thus have enormous potential for use as multi-scale tools for high-volume manufacturing of polymeric MEMS and information storage devices. Here we show the manufacture of a prototype BMG injection molding tool capable of producing cm-long polymeric components, with sub-micron surface features.||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Elsevier||Journal:||Materials Today||Volume:||15||Issue:||5||Start page:||216||End page:||221||Copyright (published version):||2012 Elsevier||Keywords:||Bulk metallic glasses; Injection molding; High-volume manufacturing||DOI:||10.1016/S1369-7021(12)70092-5||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed|
