TiNi-Base and Ti-Base Shape Memory Alloys
The basic characteristics of TiNi-based and Ni-free Ti-based shape memory alloys are reviewed. They include the crystal structures of the parent and martensite phases in both the alloys, the recoverable strain associated with the martensitic transformation, the transformation temperatures, the temperature and orientation dependence of deformation behavior, etc. The sputter-deposited Ti-Ni thin films are also reviewed briefly because of their possibility of expanding into micromechanical system applications as the most powerful microactuator.
