Special Issue "High Entropy Alloys"
A special issue of Entropy (ISSN 1099-4300).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 November 2013)
“High-entropy Alloys (HEAs)” has become an emerging field from the efforts of many researchers since 1995. Its design concept is beyond the conventional scope of materials design, and was hardly noticed previously. In principle, HEAs are alloys that have at least five major elements and thus have high mixing entropy at the liquid state or random state. High mixing entropy can enhance the formation of solution-type phases, and in general leads to simpler microstructure. HEAs have a broad range of structure and properties and may find applications in structural, electrical, magnetic, high-temperature, wear-resistant, corrosion-resistant, and oxidation-resistant components. Among numerous possibilities of HEAs or other HE-related materials, one might design suitable compositions and processes to research for desired phenomena, properties, mechanisms, theories, and applications. The central scheme of this special issue comprises thermodynamics, kinetics, structure, microstructure, properties, applications, alloy design, modeling, and simulation, which can provide our further understanding and manipulation on this new material world.
Specific topics of interest include (but are not limited to):
- thermodynamics and kinetics
- structure, microstructure, and properties
- simulation and modeling
- alloy design
- HE materials based on HEAs

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are refereed through a peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Entropy is an international peer-reviewed Open Access monthly journal published by MDPI.
