Abstract
The advantages of thermal neutron scattering in materials science are shortly reviewed. Recent results obtained on the shape memory alloys Cu-Zn-Al and Cu-Zn are presented and discussed. Emphasis is given to new, 'non-standard' techniques for the determination of effects of stacking faults on peak positions and intensities, short-range order and static displacements through elastic diffuse scattering, and temperature and concentration dependence of phonon dispersions close to the martensitic phase transition.
