Recrystallization has been a major method to induce heterogeneous grain structure for improving the strength-ductility combination of single phase high entropy alloys (HEAs). However, the recrystallization kinetics of single phase HEAs, which are the guideline for controlling the recrystallization behavior, are still lack of attention. How the partially recrystallized structure affects the mechanical response also remains less explored. Here, we uncovered the recrystallization behaviors of typical Ni-Co-Cr-Fe HEAs. NiCoCrFe and Ni2CoCrFe exhibit almost similar recrystallization activation energy around 230 kJ·mol-1, but distinctively different recrystallization kinetics. Such difference in recrystallization behavior results in distinct mesoscale structures, leading to different mechanical resonpse.
