Nickel-Titanium shape memory alloy, Nitinol, was discovered in 1965. Nitinol is an acronym for Nickel Titanium Naval Ordnance Laboratory, where the alloy’s remarkable properties were discovered. Nitinol is an alloy containing nearly equal numbers of nickel and titanium atoms, leading to its common compositional representation as NiTi. The relative amounts of Ni and Ti can be varied by a few percent in order to control the temperature of the phase change responsible for its “smart” behavior. A more accurate representation of its composition is NixTi1-x.
