A new shape memory alloy will surpass titanium nickelide

Scientists at the TSU Laboratory of Physics of High-Strength Crystals, SPhTI, under a joint grant of the Russian Science Foundation and the German Research Foundation (DFG), have developed a new alloy with shape memory. Its functional characteristics surpass those of titanium nickelide, the leader among materials capable of restoring their shape when heated after high external loads. This development is promising for creating innovative solutions in the aviation, aerospace, automotive, and robotics industries.
