dc.description A eutectic in La-rich La-Cu₀.₅Ni₀.₅-Al alloys was determined by studying the melting behaviors and the microstructure observations. The microstructures of the La-Cu-Ni-Al alloys prepared by Bridgman Solidification and copper mould casting were studied by using scanning electron microscope (SEM). The results show that La₆₆[Cu₀.₅Ni₀.₅]₂₀Al₁₄ alloy is very near to a pseudo-ternary eutectic. When the cooling rate is higher than 450 K/s, fully amorphous can be formed; when the cooling rate is within 15 K/s to 450 K/s, the alloy has a microstructure of dendrite plus amorphous, when the cooling rate is within 12 K/s to 1.5 K/s, the microstructures of the alloy are dendrite plus eutectic, and when the cooling rate is lower than 0.12 K/s, the morphology of the alloy is eutectic microstructure. The off eutectic alloy has better glass forming ability, the best glass forming alloy obtained at La₆₂[Cu₀.₅Ni₀.₅>]₂₄Al₁₄ along the composition line of La₈₆₋x[Cu₀.₅Ni₀.₅]xAl₁₄. It has a potential to form bulk metallic glassy rod samples with diameter larger than 12 mm.
