  • The exciting thermomechanical behavior of NiTi shape memory alloys (SMAs) has sparked significant research effort seeking to exploit their exotic properties. The performance capabilities of conventional NiTi offerings are limited, however, by current fabrication technologies. In this study, a high power density laser source was implemented to locally alloy Cu into a conventional NiTi material. The effects of laser processing created a localized NiTiCu ternary material domain which possessed a… CONTINUE READING
