(1) NiCoMnIn thin films

Crystallization and high temperature shape memory behavior of sputter-deposited NiMnCoIn thin films

S. Rios, I. Karaman, and X. Zhang, Applied Physics Letters 96 (2010) 173102


Highlights:
  • Fabricated amorphous NiMnCoIn thin films using dc magnetron sputtering
  • Annealing films led to high temperature shape memory behavior
  • Calorimetry studies were used to determine crystallization kinetics
