Abstract

High-throughput measurement using the numerical inverse method combined with the diffusion multiple technique was employed to determine the composition-dependent interdiffusion coefficients in fcc Al–Co–Cr–Fe–Ni high-entropy alloys at 1273, 1323, and 1373 K. The reliability of the obtained interdiffusion coefficients was confirmed by comparing the model-predicted composition/interdiffusion flux profiles with the experimental data. The tracer diffusivities of the components were then predicted based on the obtained interdiffusion coefficients and the simplified thermodynamic description. The diagonal interdiffusion coefficients in the present high-entropy alloys were comprehensively compared with those in conventional fcc alloys. Therefore, the sluggish diffusion effect does not apply for all the elements in the present fcc Al–Co–Cr–Fe–Ni high-entropy alloys. A similar result was also observed for the evaluated tracer diffusivities.
