The atomic structure and the structural relaxation of amorphous Fe40Ni40P14B6 alloy were studied using the energy dispersive X-ray diffraction method. It was demonstrated that the structure of the amorphous alloy can be determined self-consistently with high accuracy by this method. The results indicated that the structural relaxation is a highly collective process involving many atoms, and can be described in terms of the redistribution and transformation of the structural defects.
