Controlled Nanocrystallization of NiTi Shape Memory Alloy by Laser Shock Peening
In this paper, partial amorphization of NiTi alloys by laser shock peening (LSP) is reported. The microstructure of NiTi after LSP was characterized by transmission electron microscopy (TEM). The amorphization mechanism was discussed in light of the high strain rate deformation characteristics of LSP. With subsequent controlled annealing after LSP, nanostructure with different grain size distribution was achieved.
