  • The thermomechanical properties of nickel-titanium shape memory alloys have sparked significant research efforts seeking to exploit their exotic capabilities. Until recently, the performance capabilities of nickel-titanium devices have been inhibited by the retention of only one thermomechanical response. In this article, the application of a novel laser-processing technique is demonstrated to create a monolithic self-positioning nickel-titanium shape memory microgripper. Device actuation and… CONTINUE READING
