Abstract

High entropy CrxAlFeCoNi alloys with x = 0, 0.5, 1.0 and 1.5 were synthesized using arc-melting and sintering preparation techniques. Three crystal structures (fcc, bcc and σ) were observed using XRD technique, while EDX measurements showed the presence of up to three chemically different phases (Fe...
