Compositional design of multi-component alloys by high-throughput screening

Multi-component materials have become one of the most promising materials in the engineering and biomedical applications. However, the efficient screening is a huge challenge. A high-throughput method combining co-sputtering and physical mask was used to prepare the compositional gradient films, which will be used to screen in Zr-based alloys. This work not only offers novel alloys with prominent properties for practical applications, but also sheds light on development of high-throughput preparation technology.
