Abstract

In-situ electrochemical atomic force microscopy (ECAFM) study was used to observe the change in morphology of oxide film on etched NiTi in PBS at the submicron scale to investigate the effects of hydration and potential. NiTi alloy disk specimens with a diameter of 15 mm and a thickness of 2 mm were used. It was found that the oxide film on NiTi grows due to Ti oxide but is also affected by Ni component. The in-situ ECAFM results show that hydration and potential have significant effects on surface morphology of NiTi in PBS and these are related to the surface composition and electronic property of the oxide film.
