We exploit the intrinsic structural instability of the Fe(70)Pd(30) magnetic shape memory alloy to obtain functional epitaxial films exhibiting a self-organized nanostructure. We demonstrate that coherent epitaxial straining by 54% is possible. The combination of thin film experiments and large-scale first-principles calculations enables us to establish a(More)
Fe–Al alloys in the aluminium range of 55–65 at.% exhibit a lamellar microstructure of B2-ordered FeAl and triclinic FeAl 2 , which is caused by a eutectoid decomposition of the high-temperature Fe 5 Al 8 phase, the so-called " phase. The orientation relationship of FeAl and FeAl 2 has previously been studied by Bastin et al. Since both results are based on(More)
