Integration of smart materials into surgical tools and medical devices using vaporizing foil actuator technology.
TS-045092 — Shape memory alloys are metals that "remember" their original shape when deformed and can return to their initial shape when heated. These shape memory alloys cannot currently be welded to other alloys, which significantly limits their use. Current state-of-the-art methods of joining sha…
