Terfenol-D Data Sheet
For information on the history of Terfenol-D and what it is capable of, please check out
our Core Technology page.
For many applications, the advanced smart material Terfenol-D enables increased capability
in a smaller package. Terfenol-D is a near single crystal metal alloy that converts
electrical power to mechanical power, and vice versa. Terfenol-D is said to be a smart
material because of its ability to adapt to outside influences. With higher energy
density, long life, and electric drive advantages, Terfenol-D is replacing older actuator
and transducer driven materials. ETREMA is the world's leading supplier of Terfenol-D
materials, and ETREMA provides and assists with the design and manufacturing of
Terfenol-D driven products.
Terfenol-D materials are produced at ETREMA in automated crystal growth machines. As use of
the product increased, production capacity increased, and the price has fallen dramatically.
Terfenol-D is supplied to device manufacturers ready-to-use, eliminating the substantial
preparation costs traditionally associated with solid state transducer materials such

for any application.
Terfenol-D Shapes and Sizes
- Solid Rods - Solid Rods up to 65mm diameter, and up to 200mm long, or
longer, are available. Rods of 13mm, 20mm, 25mm, 40mm and 65mm are usually
- Laminated Rods - Laminated rods are used for eddy current control in higher
frequency applications. Laminated rods are quoted to order. ETREMA will consult on the
lamination thickness needed for any application.
- Holes and Odd Shapes - Terfenol-D is often produced with holes. Solid and
laminated rods are frequently produced with axial holes. Holes are sometimes needed for
cooling or prestress. Holes can also be produced in plates and other shapes. Various
non-routine shapes are frequently produced. Terfenol-D rods from the crystal machine
"grow" in the axial direction and "shrink" perpendicular to the axis. Therefore, for
shapes such as plates, attention to the axis provides creative ways to utilize
- Square Cross Section - For smaller sizes and in large quantities, square
cross sections are often more cost effective than round cross-sections. 2mm square, 3mm square and 4mm square rods
are usually in stock.
- Plates, Discs, Sputtering Targets - Other shapes can be cut or machined.
