In this paper, we demonstrate using laser induced forward transfer (LIFT) technology to deposit Ti/Ni alloy on a glass substrate with high precision. Here the photonic feature of laser energy is used to move the Ti/Ni particles forward and deposit them on the glass, while the wave feature of laser is used to turn part of the Ti/Ni particles into ions. The characteristics of deposited films and their relations with the processing conditions are studied. A new method of depositing materials using photons instead of electrons in electric field may bring about a series of new technologies on surface deposition, which can be used to produce shape memory alloys.
