Dual-phase high-entropy alloys strengthened by multicomponent intermetallic nanoparticles represent a unique class of hetero-structured materials with potentially superior mechanical properties for structural applications. Due to the multicomponent chemistries of both nanoparticles and the matrix, as well as the coherent interfaces between them, these alloys can possess excellent strength-ductility combinations over a wide temperature range. This brief viewpoint article gives an overview of the major developments achieved recently. Advantages over other classes of metallic materials as well as limitations in this field are also carefully discussed. The results provide new insights into the development of high-performance structural materials via multicomponent-nanoparticle engineering.
