Pulsed magnetic field-induced actuation of magnetic shape memory material Ni-Mn-Ga 5M martensite has been studied. Saturation velocities of fast-moving single type II twin boundaries in a range of 35-39 m/s were directly observed using high-speed camera technique. Corresponding actuation velocities of 2.1-2.3 m/s were acquired using laser Doppler vibrometry technique, both for elongation and contraction of the sample. In a case of multiple twin boundaries motion, actuation velocities of 4-5.5 m/s and actuation accelerations of (4-7)×105 m/s2 were achieved. The actuation response time was measured to be less than 1 μs. The reported results have a potential for the development of new applications, especially in microscale devices where the working frequency can be significantly increased. Example potential applications are fast optical and electrical switches,pneumatic/hydraulic valves, microfluidic pumps and valves, micromanipulators and grippers.
