Many surface related properties, such as surface roughness, surface tension and re°ection etc are heavily dependent on the surface morphology of materials. Patterned surfaces may have signi¯cant e®ects on these properties. In this paper, we compare wrinkles produced atop three di®erent 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.
