The influence of long-range L2(1) atomic order on the martensitic and magnetic transformations of Ni-Mn-Ga shape memory alloys has been investigated. In order to correlate the structural and magnetic transformation temperatures with the atomic order, calorimetric, magnetic and neutron diffraction measurements have been performed on polycrystalline and(More)
The influence of the atomic order on the martensitic transformation entropy change has been studied in a Ni-Mn-In-Co metamagnetic shape memory alloy through the evolution of the transformation temperatures under high-temperature quenching and post-quench annealing thermal treatments. It is confirmed that the entropy change evolves as a consequence of the(More)
Ferromagnetic shape memory alloys undergo a martensitic transformation accompanied by a change in the magnetic and vibrational properties. However, these property changes are not independent. In this paper, the interplay between magnetic and vibrational properties in the martensitic transformation entropy change has been analyzed for Ni-Fe-Ga ferromagnetic(More)
The different contributions to the entropy change linked to the austenite-martensitic transition in a Ni-Mn-Sn metamagnetic shape memory alloy have been determined by combining different experimental techniques. The vibrational contribution has been inferred from the vibrational density of states of both the martensitic and austenite phases. This has been(More)
In this work, the temperature and time dependence of the magnetic properties of a polycrystalline Ni(49.7)Mn(24.1)Ga(26.2) alloy is analysed. The law of approach to magnetic saturation has been employed to estimate the magnetic anisotropy in the three structural phases of the alloy (martensitic, pre-martensitic and austenitic). The temperature dependences(More)
The magnetic, magnetocaloric and thermal characteristics have been studied in a Ni(50.3)Mn(20.8)Ga(27.6)V(1.3) ferromagnetic shape memory alloy (FSMA) transforming martensitically at around 40 K. The alloy shows first a transformation from austenite to an intermediate phase and then a partial transformation to an orthorhombic martensite, all the phases(More)
