Abstract: Deformation-induced twinning has been a notable example of overcoming the strength ductility trade-off dilemma as a strengthening mechanism. By borrowing this concept from the area of TWIP steels, we designed a thermomechanical treatment for a CoCrFeMnNi high-entropy alloy to improve its mechanical charcateristics. We used pre-straining at 77 K to introduce deformation-induced twins in the microstructure of the alloy, and then recovered it by annealing at 773 K, while avoiding recrystallization. The deformation-induced twins generated by pre-straining at 77 K were retained after low-temperature heat treatment. This was accompanied with partial recovery of dislocations. As a result, the room-temperature mechanical properties of the pre-strained and recovered alloy were improved substantially.
