Tents and tunnels on martensitic films


In this paper we outline a strategy for producing certain deformable structures — tents and tunnels — on epitaxially grown martensitic single crystal films. These structures are intended to be the basic building blocks of micropumps and microactuators. We give specific predictions for the systems Ni_2MnGa, PbTiO_3 and Cu-Zn-Al.
