High-entropy films (HEFs) are of considerable interest in surface engineering applications due to their superior properties, such as good corrosion resistance, good thermal stability and excellent high temperature oxidation. Recently, the scientific community has seen an increasing development of the multicomponent coatings, improving their properties compared to conventional films. Technically, different strategies have been exploited to fabricate HEFs. Magnetron-sputtered HEFs have made
