Compression behavior of the Al0.5CoCrCuFeNi high-entropy alloy (HEA) was studied at different temperatures from 673 K to 873 K at a low strain rate of 5 × 10−5/s to investigate the temperature effect on the mechanical properties and serration behavior. The face-centered-cubic (fcc) structure is confirmed at the lower temperature of 673 K and 773 K, and a structure of mixed fcc and body-centered cubic (bcc) is identified at a higher temperature of 873 K after compression tests using high-energy synchrotron x-ray diffraction. By comparing the stress–strain curves at different temperatures, two opposite directions of serrations types were found, named upward serrations appearing at 673 K and 773 K and downward serrations at 873 K, which may be due to dynamic strain aging.
