Neutron diffraction study of temperature-dependent elasticity of B19' NiTi; Elinvar effect and elastic softening

Ahadi, A.*; Khaledialidusti, R.*; Kawasaki, Takuro; Harjo, S.; Barnoush, A.*; Tsuchiya, Koichi*

The temperature-dependent elasticity of the B19' NiTi is unknown today. To gain insights into the lattice-level temperature-dependent elasticity of the B19' crystal, we present results of ${it in situ}$ neutron diffraction experiments performed on polycrystalline martensitic specimens in the temperature range of 300 down to 50 K. The experimental results are compared with the density functional theory molecular dynamics (DFT-MD) and Quasi Harmonic Approximation (QHA) calculations. The results confirm that the temperature-dependent Young's modulus (TDYM) of the B19' crystal is strongly anisotropic. The experimental results along with the first-principles calculations confirm that the Elinvar and Invar are two confluent properties in NiTi SMAs and can be tailored by texturing B19' crystallographic orientations.
