Bonded interface technique was employed to examine the nature of subsurface deformation during Vickers indentation in two kinds of bulk metallic glasses (BMGs), $Pd_{42.1}Ni_{39.77}P_{18.13}$, and $Zr_{56.69}Cu_{26.96}Al_{10.95}Ni_{5.4.}$ Quantitative information such as the shear band spacing, pile-up length, subsurface deformation zone size etc. was recorded for indentation loads ranging from 50 to 5000 g. Experimental results show that both the BMGs have an average hardness value of $\sim$550 VHN with slightly higher hardness at low loads. Observations of deformation zones indicate that they deform appreciably through the shear band mechanism. For both bulk indentation, as well as the interface indentation, the normalized size of the deformation zone was found to be independent of the applied load. Two types of shear bands, radial, and semi-circular in nature, have been observed. These results are compared with similar studies made on ductile metals and silicate glasses.
