High entropy alloys (HEAs) and other multi-principal-element materials are multicomponent systems in which high entropy of mixing, or kinetic effects, stabilize a solid solution. They exhibit unique chemical and physical properties and have therefore recently attracted a growing interest in the materials science community. This session will be a platform for thin film-related research on high entropy and multi-principal-element materials including metal alloys, carbides, nitrides, and oxides as well as other multicomponent systems in which high entropy affects phase stability. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, modelling, thin film processing, and characterizations of HEAs and other multi-principal-element materials.

Invited Speakers  

Brian Cantor, University of Bradford, UK
"Some Fundamental Issues and Practical Examples of High Entropy and Multi-component Alloys"

Levente Vitos, KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Sweden
"High Entropy Materials: Challenge of First-principle Quantum Mechanical Modelling"
