We report on the production of thin films of TiNi shape memory alloy, grown by ion beam sputter deposition (IBSD) using a Kaufman-type source, for microactuator applications. IBSD is a vacuum-coating process in which a target is bombarded by accelerated ions from a showered ion beam source and sputtered atoms of the target material are deposited onto a nearby substrate. In this work, argon ions at energies up to 1500 eV and current densities of similar to 1 mA cm(-2) are used to bombard sectored targets of titanium and nickel in order to deposit TiNi films onto unheated substrates. The films were characterized by electrical resistivity measurements and x-ray reflectometry. R-phase and martensitic transformations are seen without high-temperature annealing and the shape memory properties are compared with those of films prepared by DC and RF magnetron sputtering.
