Nanoparticles boost shape-memory effect

Abstract:
Researchers at the Institute of Polymer Research in Germany and DKI German Institute for Polymers have incorporated magnetic nanoparticles in thermoplastic polymers to create shape-memory materials. Applying a magnetic field to a temporarily deformed piece of the material causes it to change back to its original shape, a phenomenon that could be exploited in medical applications.
