  1. 1. Alloy Design and Optimization of Mechanical Properties of High-Entropy Alloys

    Author : Saad Ahmed Sheikh; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ductility; topologically closed-pack TCP and geometrically closed-pack GCP phase; alloy design; mechanical properties; High-entropy alloys; refractory high-entropy alloys; valence electron concentration;

    Abstract : High-entropy alloys (HEAs) are described as alloys containing multi-principal elements in equal or close to equal atomic percentage. HEAs are considered as potential structural materials for high-temperature applications; where alloy design and optimization of mechanical properties is extremely critical. READ MORE

  2. 2. Refractory High-entropy Alloy and Nitride Thin Films

    Author : Rui Shu; Per Eklund; Arnaud Le Febvrier; Alfred Ludwig; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; High-entropy alloy; nitrides; magnetron sputtering; superconductor; irradiation-tolerance; protective coating.;

    Abstract : This thesis focuses on understanding the process-structure-property relation-ships for several refractory-metal-based high-entropy alloys and nitrides synthesized by magnetron sputtering.  The thesis begins with the growth of TiZrNbTaNx understoichiometric nitrides by controlling substrate temperature and nitrogen flow ratio fN.

  3. 3. Hunting Hydrogen : Structure-property relations in High Entropy Alloy-based metal hydrides

    Author : Gustav Ek; Martin Sahlberg; Ulrich Häussermann; William I.F. David; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Hydrogen; metal-hydride; High Entropy Alloy; Chemistry with specialization in Inorganic Chemistry; Kemi med inriktning mot oorganisk kemi;

    Abstract : Metal hydrides have many uses when switching the energy system from fossil fuels to renewable sources, such as rechargeable batteries, hydrogen storage, hydrogen compression and thermal storage. State of the art materials for these applications such as LaNi5 and TiFe, however, suffer certain limitations such as degradation during repeated hydrogen cycling and harsh activation conditions for initial hydrogen uptake, promoting the need for novel materials.
