Significant update of knowledge in the field of high-entropy materials, including promising new high-entropy ceramics
High-Entropy Materials provides information on state-of-the-art development in the field of high-entropy materials, including high-entropy alloys, high-entropy ceramics, and a variety of their applications, covering many core topics to provide a thorough and detailed overview of the subject.
The book also thoroughly explores the applications of high-entropy materials in various areas, such as EBC/TBC coating, superhard and wear resistance coating, nuclear energy, batteries, catalysts, thermoelectric, supercapacitors, biocompatible structure, and microelectronics.
In High-Entropy Materials, readers can expect to find specific information on:
- Basics of high entropy materials, structural features and thermodynamics of high-entropy materials, and theoretical design in high-entropy materials
- Synthesis and processing of high-entropy materials and characterization of high-entropy materials, as well as their mechanical and functional properties
- Challenges and future directions of high-entropy materials, a relatively new type of material that has been in development only since the early 2000s
- How high-entropy materials are a horizon-broadening class of materials that can significantly further humanity's pursuit of progress
Focusing on the fundamentals and developments of high-entropy alloys and ceramics as well as on their microstructure and properties for a wide range of applications, High-Entropy Materials is an essential resource on the subject for materials scientists, metallurgists, mechanical engineers, and professionals in the aerospace industries.
