We used the pulsed laser beam welding method to join Pd43Cu27Ni10P20 BMG. For a range of welding parameters completely amorphous welds can be achieved as quantified by XRD and thermal analysis. The mechanical properties of the weld are comparable with that of the bulk material suggesting that pulsed laser beam welding is a versatile method to join BMGs. For example, it can be used for additive manufacturing to fabricate on demand geometries with superb mechanical properties.
