This text reviews recent developments in the field of shape memory materials, which are becoming more and more important as "smart (intelligent)" materials. The fundamental principles and properties are discussed, as well as the associated experimental and processing methods. Special emphasis is placed on the present, and potential future, applications of SMMs. Superelastic wires are already being used for the antennae of cellular phones, and medical stents and guide wires promise to become big business as well. Rapid progress is also being made in fundamental aspects, such as the kinetics of martensitic transformations, premartensitic behaviour, aging problems, thin-film SMA, etc. Moreover, new experimental techniques are becoming available: such as imaging plane, TFM with energy filter, AFM, grazing-angle x-ray reflection, etc.
