Shape Memory Effect Analysis by X-Ray Diffraction
Shape memory effects are closely related to the reversible martensitic transformation. Hence signal importance is attached to the study of the influence of this transformation and also martensite structure and its defects on shape memory, particularly from the aspect of alloys properties for potential applications. The X-ray method offers the possibility of direct study of the reverse martensitic transformation. The NiTi and copper-based alloys have already found a valuable practical application.
