Nickel Titanium Alloys
As if it is alive, Shape Memory Alloy (SMA) returns to its original shape when heated after being deformed and distorted. The NiTi alloys are used in various fields: home electric appliances such as coffee makers, automobiles, the Shinkansen (bullet train), and geostationary satellite altitude controlling systems.
