Nickel-Titanium Smart Hybrid Materials: From Micro- to Nano-structured Alloys for Emerging Applications describes the advanced properties that can be adapted in NiTi-alloys. The information presented here will help researchers find multidirectional NiTi-alloys for functional and structural application.

Nickel-Titanium (NiTi) systems are receiving wide demand in growing industries, due to their particular smart, high-temperature, or biocompatible behaviour. In this book, these influenced behaviours are carefully described in the micro-scale and nanoscale range. NiTi smart materials are described, on the basis of their shape memory effect (SME) and super-elastic (SE) properties, for sensor and actuator application.

This book discusses novel properties of nickel-titanium systems. This will help materials scientists and engineers to produce smart technologies and systems for the aeronautical, automobile, mechanical, healthcare, and electronic industries.

Key Features

  • Describes the use of nanotechnology and microtechnology in nickel-titanium-based systems
  • Outlines the major properties of Nickel-Titanium Nanoalloys
  • Assesses the major challenges of manufacturing nickel-titanium nanoalloys at an industrial scale
