Laser welding is employed to weld Zr67.8Cu24.7Al3.43Ni4.07 bulk metallic glass, and the effects of laser power and welding velocity on the microstructures of bulk metallic glass joints are studied. Owing to the high speed and high-energy density of laser welding, the weld fusion zones remain amorphous structure. Some nano-grains are formed in weld fusion zones and of benefits for the improvement of microhardness. Crystallization happens in heat-affected zone and deteriorates the hardness of materials. The joint welded with laser power of 600 W and velocity of 110 mm/s exhibits the lowest degree of crystallization. Larger laser power or slower welding speed would cause excessive heat accumulation in heat-affected zone. 10 Ref., 1 Table, 3 Figures.
