AdaptaMat Ltd, Helsinki Finland is the manufacturer of single crystal Magnetic Shape Memory Alloys.
Magnetic Shape Memory is a smart single crystal metal alloy. MSM element elongates/contracts 6% of its length as magnetic field is applied to it. Movement is proportional with the field strength. Other functional properties of this material:
1. Villari effect i.e. inverse magnetostriction i.e magnetization changes proportionally with element's length.
2. Permeability changes with the element's length.
3. Resistance changes with the element's length.
4. High Temperature Shape Memory alloy.
Applications: vibration energy harvesters, sensors, self-sensing actuators, pumps, vibration damping
