TiNi thin film characterization

For my materials science degree at UC Berkeley, I used a transmission electron microscope to characterized sputtered thin films of TiNi shape memory alloy. The company I worked with was constructing small valves for microfluidic applications.

  • Electron beam diffraction patterns of TiNi in different orientations
