Special Issue Information
Over the past two decades, new generations of alloys of great potential interest for various applications, requiring good mechanical behavior and resistance, have attracted increasing attention. Some examples include High-Entropy Alloys (HEAs) for medium/high temperatures (e.g., around 1000°C) and Refractory High-Entropy Alloys (RHEA) for very high temperatures (largely beyond 1000°C). These new alloys may potentially lead to versions capable of competing with superalloys and refractory alloys, which are currently used in aeronautics (turbine disks, turbine blades, etc.) power generation (burners, hot turbine components, etc.) and various processes working at high temperature (glass industries, etc.). Some HEAs contain equimolar quantities of several elements among Fe, Co, Ni, Cr, Mn, Cu, etc., while RHEA involves refractory metals such as Mo, Ta, W, Hf, Zr or Nb. Numerous fabrication ways are considered to elaborate them, from conventional foundry to powder metallurgy, to produce structural materials or coatings.
Due to the relative youth of these high-temperature alloy families, many systems combining the previous elements or introducing new ones have yet to be investigated in the fields of compositions and structures, synthesis mode or utilization temperature, as well as various mechanical, chemical, thermal and physical properties.
This Special Issue provides an opportunity to disseminate the newest results obtained by researchers in all the above-mentioned domains.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Crystals is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2000 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
