  One type of cage structure around the spin-density of one electron in a model of cement-based semiconducting metallic glass (gray=Al; green=Ca; and red=O). Credit: Akola et al.; Argonne National Lab.   Normally in the creation of a metallic glass, the process begins with a metal that is transformed to a glassy state. Now, however, a…
