Shear bands were observed as a result of plastic deformation in cold-rolled Al88Y7Fe5 metallic glass. They display alternating density changes with respect to the matrix (high and low density segments) along their propagation direction. Electron Energy loss spectroscopy (EELS) was used to map the volume Plasmons of shear bands and surrounding matrix. A characteristic Plasmon energy shift of about 10-20 meV relative to the matrix was found for both high and low density segments. For precise analysis, an open source python module (Hyperspy) was utilized to fit the peak shapes by Lorentzian functions and to visualize e.g. the Plasmon energy shift, peak width and height. The experimental results are discussed with respect to the ionic density and the plasmon-phonon interaction.
