Nanoindentation and thermomechanical experiments on three types of metallic glasses with different glass forming ability were carried out. The nanoindentation behaviour at room temperature was associated with the creep at elevated temperatures. Different discontinuity populations and their shape observed on the nanoindentation loading curves were compared with morphology of plastic deformed indent regions. The influence of the differences in thermal stability of studied alloys on the nanoindentation in these alloys were studied as well.
