And combine this new alloy with the other Ti alloy called Nitinol, and we have super hard and resilient materials, that can morph shape, perform
actions and orientate itself depending on temperatures applied to the alloy.
Interesting biotechnology potential.
Imagine an artificial heart made from Ti3Au and NiTi, which could 'beat' and of course pump blood due to a small heating element turning on and off 60
or 70 times a minute, and you end up with a very tough, body safe heart, no rejection issues and the more it beats, expanding and contracting the NiTI
lattice, it gets stronger as it goes.
Who needs to grow an organic heart when one made of this stuff and NiTi could last several lifetimes?
