Paper Abstract

Heterostructure multilayers of ferroelastic TiNi coupled to thin film TiO2 and ferroelectric lead zirconate titanate (PZT) produces a smart material capable of performing both sensing and actuating functions. An important issue is the ability to generate the appropriate crystalline phases of each of the materials and to minimize the chemical interactions from the surrounding material. TiO2 and PZT thin films were deposited onto commercially available TiNi substrates by the sol-gel process. Minimum crystallization temperatures for the TiO2 phases and PZT perovskite phases were determined and characterized by x-ray diffraction.
