TL;DR: In this paper, the use of stress-induced martensite decreases the temperature sensitivity of the devices, thereby making them easier to install and/or remove, and thus reducing the cost.
Abstract: Medical devices which are currently proposed to use elements made from shape memory alloys may be improved by the use of stress-induced martensite alloy elements instead. The use of stress-induced martensite decreases the temperature sensitivity of the devices, thereby making them easier to install and/or remove.
TL;DR: The magnetic-field-induced shape recovery of a compressively deformed NiCoMnIn alloy is reported, attributing this deformation behaviour to a reverse transformation from the antiferromagnetic (or paramagnetic) martensitic to the ferromagnetic parent phase in the Ni45Co5Mn36.7In13.3 single crystal.
Abstract: Large magnetic-field-induced strains1 have been observed in Heusler alloys with a body-centred cubic ordered structure and have been explained by the rearrangement of martensite structural variants due to an external magnetic field1,2,3. These materials have attracted considerable attention as potential magnetic actuator materials. Here we report the magnetic-field-induced shape recovery of a compressively deformed NiCoMnIn alloy. Stresses of over 100 MPa are generated in the material on the application of a magnetic field of 70 kOe; such stress levels are approximately 50 times larger than that generated in a previous ferromagnetic shape-memory alloy4. We observed 3 per cent deformation and almost full recovery of the original shape of the alloy. We attribute this deformation behaviour to a reverse transformation from the antiferromagnetic (or paramagnetic) martensitic to the ferromagnetic parent phase at 298 K in the Ni45Co5Mn36.7In13.3 single crystal.

TL;DR: Otsuka et al. as mentioned in this paper showed a one-to-one correspondence between shape memory effect and the thermoelastic martensitic transformation in a Cu-AI-Ni alloy.
Abstract: In some alloys, a given plastic strain recovers completely when the con cerned alloy is heated above a certain temperature. This phenomenon, shape memory effect (SME), was observed in Au-Cd (1) and In-Tl (2) alloys in the first half of 1950s. However, SME was not a focus of research until it was found in a Ti-Ni alloy (3) in 1963, when the phenomenon was first termed the shape memory effect. A similar phenomenon was found in a Cu-AI-Ni alloy as well (3a). At that time, however, SME was considered to be a peculiar phenomenon limited to the specific Ti-Ni alloy. In 1970, Otsuka & Shimizu (4, 4a) unambiguously demonstrated a one to-one correspondence between SME and the thermoelastic martensitic transformation in a Cu-AI-Ni alloy. Thus, they concluded that SME is characteristic of alloys exhibiting thermoelastic martensitic trans formations. They ascribed the origin to the crystallographic reversibility of the thermoelastic transformation and the presence of a recoverable deformation mode, i.e. twinning, in thermoelastic alloys. Since then, there
