Scope: High-entropy alloys (HEAs) loosely refer to multi-principal-element solid solution alloys due to their high configurational entropy. Their compositions are located in the center region of a multicomponent phase diagram, in contrast to traditional alloys that typically focus on the edge or corner of phase diagrams. The unique compositions and the resulting attractive properties of HEAs have stimulated growing research interest due to scientific curiosity and potential industrial applications. This special topic on high-entropy alloys invites contributions from authors working in the various fields of HEAs to disseminate the rapid progress in this fascinating and expanding class of advanced materials.
