Amorphous metal: The amorphous is metal alloy which differ in crystalline structure. The atoms are arranged in random configuration. 

Properties of amorphous metal: 1) Thermal conductivity of amorphous metal is lower than that of crystalline metal. 2) High magnetic susceptibility with low coercivity and high electrical resistance which contribute to low losses. 3) High resistance which leads to low eddy current losses. 4) The tensile strength is almost that of high grade titanium. 5) They are true glasses, which mean that they soften and flow upon heating, which allows easy processing. 6) The alloy does not undergo shrinkage on solidification, which helps in bones attachments.
