Ti50Ni50-xCux fine fibers were successfully developed by the arc-melted rapid-solidification method.It has been very difficult to do the conventional melt-work processing from the bulk material of this alloy to very fine fiber because of the brittleness from metallic compounds especially in the range of Cu⩾8 at%. The fibers showed good shape memroy effect. As Cu content increased, the temperature hysteresis of recovery strain-temperature curves as well as DSC curves became smaller and the tensile strength showed more than 1000MPa in Ti50Ni40Cu10 at% fiber. Therefore, the developed rapid-solidified, thermoelastic fiber fiber actuator/sensor materials have high potentiality of applications for micro-machines and the fillers of smart composites.
