  • Magnetization and magnetocaloric effect in magnetic shape memory alloys Ni-Mn-Ga

    Magnetization of Ni/sub 52/Mn/sub 24.4/Ga/sub 23.6/ and Ni/sub 52/Mn/sub 24.2/Ga/sub 23.8/ magnetic shape memory alloys was measured as a function of magnetic field up to 50 kOe at temperatures in the range 160-390 K. Anomalies of magnetic properties were observed not only at the temperature of martensitic transition T/sub M/, but also at a second transition temperature T/sub I/<T/sub M/. We assume that T/sub I/ is associated with an intermartensitic transformation.

  • Shape memory alloy thin film fabricated by laser ablation

    New fabrication method using "Laser Ablation" was first applied to make SMA (TiNi alloy) thin film. TiNi thin film was obtained successfully and it showed one of the highest transformation temperature (351[k]) as SMA thin films. This transformation temperature was as high as conventional bulk TiNi alloy. Effectiveness and superiority to conventional process such as sputtering and vacuum vapor deposition was verified by several experiments in material science. It is considered that the most of advantages of the laser ablation of the TiNi thin film was caused by "ablation effect" in lower temperature rather than "thermal effect" during the process.

  • Application of shape memory alloy as detector material for far-infrared imaging transducers

    Based on the thermo-mechanical deformation property of shape memory alloys (SMAs), a nickel-titanium shape memory alloy (NiTi SMA) is used to construct an infrared imaging device. The NiTi SMA device is in the form of a thin film cantilever pixel. The absorption of energy from the impinging infrared radiation changes the horizontal tilt of the pixel due to the reverse martensitic transformation of NiTi SMA. The tilt angle change can be detected by illuminating the cantilever using a laser beam. One can therefore generate an IR image by monitoring the optical reflection from the thin film cantilever pixel. The possibility of realizing a practical low-cost infrared imaging device operating under room temperature conditions is envisaged.

  • Fabrication of TiNi shape memory alloy micro-structures and ceramic micro-mold by LIGA-MA-SPS process

    Metals and ceramics are becoming increasing of importance to microsystem in reproduction and molding techniques because of the mechanical and physical properties. In the study, we have developed a new process using LIGA mold which is able to cast a microstructure of alloys or ceramics using spark plasma sintering (SPS) machine. In addition, the alloys are made by mechanical alloying (MA) method using a combination of different metal powder. A micro spring structure of Ti-Ni-Cu shape memory alloy powder was produced by way of trial. Finally, it was found that the LIGA-MA-SPS process is an effective technique.

  • Tube type micro manipulator using shape memory alloy (SMA)

The MIF is flexible film, which includes heaters, sensors, lead wires and electrodes. This manipulator was controlled with position feedback loop, using the sensor's information.

Results of applying the proposed solution to the drop shape analysis process are presented, analyzed and discussed.

  • Design and characterization of a novel hybrid actuator using shape memory alloy and DC motor for minimally invasive surgery applications

    Recent developments in the field of robotics, smart materials, micro actuators and mechatronics have opened a new frontier for innovation and development in millimeter scale actuators for use in medical robotics. In this paper a novel design idea for developing a millimeter scale actuator is presented for actuating the end effector of a robot performing minimally invasive surgery (MIS). This actuator is designed by combining DC motor and shape memory alloy (SMA) actuator in series. The designed actuator is 5 mm in diameter and 40 mm in length and is used to actuate 10 mm long needle driver jaws, while generating a force of 15 N and a gripping force of 5.5 N.

  • Bistable physical geometries for terahertz plasmonics using shape memory alloys

    We demonstrate the applicability of shape memory alloys for creating THz plasmonic structures that can be reversibly reconfigured. This is accomplished by training nickel titanium alloy free-standing foils to have two bistable temperatures between which the physical structure can be switched thermally. Specifically, we show that the metal foil can be switched between a flat foil and one that has either a one-dimensional or two-dimensional corrugation. By perforating the metal foil with a periodic array of subwavelength apertures, we show the transmission spectrum can be thermally switched easily.
