Disorder is both intrinsic to all materials and a route to enhanced functionality. A combination of 1) high chemical disorder and 2) metal-nonmetal bonding offers a new direction for thermal protection barriers, wear- and corrosion-resistant coatings, batteries, and catalysts. Engineering these materials for applications demands an understanding of the mechanisms governing synthesizability and other entropy-driven behavior, a challenging task often resolved within a limited context or neglected altogether. A simple modeling paradigm is presented that has already led to the discovery of new metal-carbide systems achieving high hardness values as predicted. Promising new research directions for high-entropy ceramics will also be identified.


Corey Oses is a Postdoctoral Fellow at Duke University in the Department of Mechanical Engineering and Materials Science. He received a PhD in Materials Science from Duke University in 2018 and a BSc in Applied and Engineering Physics from Cornell University in 2013. His research interests include design of data-driven thermodynamic descriptors for disordered materials and development of autonomous frameworks enabling materials informatics.
