Title: Critical Review of Chemical Complexity Effect on Local Structure of Multi-principal-Element Alloys

Abstract

The multi-principal-element alloy (MPEA) strategy has radically changed the pathway of alloy development by shifting the search for useful alloys from the corners to the center region of the phase diagram. Distinct from conventional one-principal-element alloys, chemically complex MPEAs exhibit extreme diversity in terms of atomic size and chemistry, potentially distorting their local structure. In this study, we summarize recent experimental and theoretical progress on study of the local structure of such materials, with emphases on local lattice distortion and the charge transfer effect.
