Naturally, this equivalency of alloying elements in stabilizing a particular crystal structure reminds the well-known effect of electron concentration on the crystal structure in conventional alloys [42]. Before the effect of electron concentration on the crystal structure of solid solutions forming HEAs is discussed, two different notions of electron concentrations, valence electron concentration (VEC) and electrons per atom ratio (e/a), will be introduced first, as there exist subtle differences in their definitions and resulting applications.

Tian et al. studied the structural stability in CoCrFeNiAlx HEAs and they found that at 300 K the fcc phase in these alloys is stable at VEC ! 04 [55]. These threshold VEC values are not too far away from those proposed by Guo et al. [37]. Firstly, as discussed before, the threshold VEC values proposed by Guo et al. are mainly for reference only and variations among different alloy systems are expected. ’s calculation, the relative stability of fcc and bcc phases was compared at 300 K. This would also cause some concerns, as these solid solution phases are not equilibrium phases at room temperature [50].
