Films deposited at a relatively high temperature (about 400  C) are crystallized in situ, thus there is no need for postannealing.

The solid lines show the DSC curves measured upon cooling, while the dashed curves show those upon heating. Solution treated film (X ¼ 0) shows no transformation peak upon cooling in the DSC curve, indicating that the transformation temperatures are very low, hence again there is no reverse transformation peak upon heating. In age-treated thin films, there are two transformation peaks appearing on each solid curve: the two peaks denoted by R* and M* correspond to the R-phase and martensitic transformations, respectively.
