Abstract
We have studied by synchrotron white beam X-Ray Topography in situ and in real time, the thermoelastic transformation of the Cu-Zn-Al shape memory alloy. The evolution of the first martensite lath has been followed during the temperature variation and its interaction with the crystalline defects of the parent phase has been shown.
