The effort to understand and design concentrated solid-solution alloys (CSAs), including high entropy alloys (HEAs), has prompted fundamental questions that challenge established theories and models currently applicable to conventional alloys. The current understanding of electronic and atomic effects, defect dynamics, and microstructure evolution in CSAs suggests that radiation energy dissipates at different interaction strengths via the energy carriers. Modification of electronic- and atomic-level heterogeneities and tailoring of atomic transport processes can be realized through tuning of the chemical complexity of such alloys via the selection of elements and their concentrations. Controlling energy dissipation via site-to-site chemical complexity reveals new design principles for predictive discovery and guided synthesis of new alloys of new alloys with targeted functionalities, including much increased structural strength and substantially improved radiation performance.
