NiTi-based shape memory thin films have attracted much attention in recent years as intelligent and functional materials in the rapidly growing field of Micro-Electro- Mechanical-Systems (MEMS) and Bio-MEMS. In this paper the fabrication of NiTi and NiTiHf thin films by a DC magnetron sputtering using simultaneous deposition from elemental targets is reported. The characterization of the films were performed using a differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) and X-ray diffractometry (XRD) to explore transformation temperatures and structure as a function of film composition. The results showed that film composition is a critical issue to control transition temperatures. The proposed technique can be considered as a flexible fabrication method to control precise film composition, which leads to manufacturing of shape memory microactuators in a wide range of applications.
