The review describes the current state of research into the formation of a nanocrystalline structure in amorphous alloys under thermal and deformation effects. The processes of the formation of nanocrystals in the homogeneous and heterogeneous amorphous structure (nanoglass) are considered. Changes in the magnetic and mechanical properties during the formation of a composite amorphous-nanocrystalline structure with different structural parameters are presented. The possibility of recovery (rejuvenation) of the amorphous phase from a partially crystalline structure under the cryogenic treatment is shown.
