Abstract

The combination of 9R martensite plate variants in Ti50.0Pd43.0Fe7.0 shape memory alloy has been investigated by conventional transmission electron microscopy (CTEM). Three fundamental combinations of plate variants are identified in the plate group. These are designated as A:B, A:C and A:D types, which correspond to 〈5̄91〉9R Type II, {114̄}9R Type I and {105}9R compound twins, respectively. They show the same morphological characteristics of 9R and 18R martensite in Cu-base shape memory alloys, i.e., wedge, spear and fork (or kink) types. The Type II and compound twins are new findings. Irrational nature of the A:B interface is also studied in the edge-on state by high resolution electron microscopy (HREM). The boundary is gradually and randomly curved with strain contrast.
