Many surface related properties, such as surface roughness, surface tension and reflection etc are heavily dependent on the surface morphology of materials. Patterned surfaces may have significant effects on these properties. In this paper, we compare wrinkles produced atop three different types of shape memory materials, namely, shape memory alloy, shape memory polymer and shape memory hybrid. We show the advantages and disadvantages of them in terms of the processing techniques and the resultant wrinkle patterns.
