Ir-base quaternary alloy 76.5Ir-13.5Nb-8.1Ni-1.9Al (in atomic percent) with an fcc/L12 two-phase structure showed an excellent balance of high-temperature strength and ductility in the previous study. In the present work, the compressive creep behavior of the alloy was characterized within a temperature range of 1500 to 1800 °C and a stress range of 50 to 200 MPa. The microstructure before and after the creep test was investigated. Depending on the steady-state creep rate, the creep stress exponent was calculated.
