High-entropy alloys (HEAs) show remarkable mechanical properties. Stacking-fault energies (SFEs) have been successfully used as a descriptor to link atomic simulations to the macroscopic deformation mechanisms that are behind the superior mechanical performance to atomistic simulations. We study interstitial alloying in 3d-transition-element-based HEAs and its impact on SFEs using first-principles calculations. For face-centered cubic (FCC) CrMnFeCoNi, C is found to increase the SFE, while even qualitatively different trends are found for other HEAs. This demonstrates the possibility to tune the SFEs of HEAs by interstitial alloying. The C solution energies in FCC CrMnFeCoNi strongly vary depending on the specific local chemical environment of the C atoms. This also emphasizes the strong potential impact of chemical short-range order on interstitially alloyed HEAs.
