Ji Young Kim, Seoul National UniversityThe image shows the Ti-Ta-Hf-Zr-Nb High entropy alloy (HEA) particles fabricated by gas atomization. Since the particle's surface has a planet-like structure, it is expressed as a hidden planet, Planet X, which has not yet been discovered. The original image was obtained using TESCAN MIRA 3 Field Emission Scanning Electron Microscope (FE-SEM).
