High Entropy Alloy Symposium 2017
Easo George, who joined the Ruhr-Universität Bochum for two years. In this time he established high entropy alloys as a research topic in SFB/TR 103, arguing that the gamma channels of Ni-base superalloys are compositionally complex and therefore qualify as high entropy alloys. Just before Easo George headed back home to the United States, the SFB/TR 103 organized a farewell colloquium. The title of the symposium was “Recent Progress in High Entropy and Compositionally Complex Alloys“. It was organized at the Centre for IT Security in the Technologie Quartier near the RUB on 12 and 13 January 2017. Leading scientists from all over the world participated in the symposium, including Michael Mills from Ohio State University, Rob Ritchie from the University of California Berkley, William A. Curtin from the Swiss Federal Institute for Technology Lausanne, and Haruyuki Inui from the University of Kyoto. Easo George himself gave an excellent introductory and overview lecture. The high entropy alloy symposium was the first outreach activity of SFB/TR 103 in its second funding period.
