Abstract

Shape memory materials are stimulus-responsive materials and referred to use as smart materials/systems in the field of textiles in recent years. The aim of the study is to achieve shape memory fibers by adding the shape memory alloy particles (whiskers) into a polymer matrix. For this purpose, the whiskers are formed by thin films growth by magnetron sputtering. In our study targets were prepared with NiMnXY (X:Sn, Sb; Y:B)) metal in different atomic ratios and the sputtering parameters has been optimizing since the shape memory alloy thin films exhibited lower transformation temperatures around the body temperature.
