Formation of Structure and Phase Composition in Ecviatomic Alloys of Cu–Ni–Al–Fе–Cr System Synthesized by Mechanical Alloying

Nanocrystalline equiatomic high-entropy alloys (HEAs) have been synthesized by mechanical alloying in Cu–Ni–Al–Fе–Cr system from the binary CuNi alloy to the quinary CuNiAlFeCr alloy. By using X-ray diffraction analysis structure and phase evolution during mechanical alloying (MA) in binary to quinary alloys selected from Cu, Ni, Al, Fe и Cr in sequence were investigated. Binary CuNi alloy formed solid solution with face-centered cubic crystal structure in nanocrystalline state.
