Title:
Characterization of Shape-Memory Alloy Thin Films Made up from Sputter-Deposited {{Ni}}/{{Ti}} Multilayers 
Abstract:
A novel fabrication process for Ni\textendash{}Ti shape-memory alloy thin films is presented. This process is based on the appropriate annealing of sputter-deposited Ni/Ti multilayers. X-ray diffraction shows that interdiffusion of the two constituents results either in the amorphization of the multilayer structure after annealing at 330$^i̧rc$C or in the recrystallization as a Ni\textendash{}Ti intermetallic compound after annealing at temperatures above 400$^i̧rc$C. A single 30 min annealing s...    »
