Recently, high-entropy alloys (HEAs) have aroused growing interest in the scientific community. HEAs contain multiple basic alloying elements and have a wide composition range, which is attractive for the design of new alloys. HEAs are defined as alloys with five or more metallic elements, each of which has an atomic percentage between 5% and 35%. HEAs have unique compositions and microstructures, and they exhibit attractive properties including high strength, high-temperature strength and good structural stability for high-temperature applications. Yet, although the bulk properties of some HEAs are good, their surface properties may be insufficient. Surface properties are very important for a wide variety of advanced industrial applications, especially in areas where surface performance is important, such as tribology-, corrosion-, and oxidation-resistance properties. Thus, the focus has recently turned to the surface properties of HEAs. Within this context, we would like to invite you to submit your manuscript(s) to Materials for the Special Issue on Surface Treatment for High-Entropy Alloys. The scope of this Special Issue includes various traditional and advanced surface treatment methods applied to HEAs (thermo-chemical surface treatment methods, boronizing, nitriding, carburizing, aluminizing, siliciding, thermal spray, sputter deposition, micro-arc oxidation, laser surface melting, laser/plasma cladding, shot/sand blasting, friction stir welding). The aim of the Special Issue is to demonstrate the current research and the potential of these HEAs. Full papers, communications, and reviews are all welcome. We are looking forward to receiving your contributions.

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. Materials is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 2600 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.
