"Development of High Entropy Alloys"

High entropy alloys (HEA) are a novel group of alloys composed of five or more principal elements with near equivalent atomic percentages. They have an excellent combination of properties such as high strength, high thermal stability and high resistance to corrosion. My research aims to understand the effects of principal elements on microstructure development, phase stability during manufacturing
processes, and explore the potential engineering applications of HEAs.
