Quaternary Heusler alloy Ni50Mn8Fe17Ga25 ribbons have been prepared by the melt-spun method. The ribbons exhibit large negative magnetoresistance (MR){=[R(H)−R(0)]∕R(0)} over a wide temperature region, particularly in the region during the martensitic phase transformation. The MR decreases significantly after annealing. The large MR is isotropic and is mainly attributed to the local magnetic disorders, magnetic clusters, and heterogeneity. The maximum MR at martensitic transformation may be due…

Magnetocaloric effect in Ni-Fe-Ga Heusler alloys with Co and Al substitutions

The functionality of the ferromagnetic shape memory alloys is related to the martensitic and magnetic order-disorder transformations, both of which may be tailored by doping with other elements or by

Magnetic and Magnetostrictive Properties of Ni50Mn20Ga27Cu3 Rapidly Quenched Ribbons

The Magnetostriction measurements suggest a rotational mechanism in low fields for the thermal treated samples and a saturation tendency at higher magnetic fields, except for the temperatures close to the phase transition temperatures (saturation is not reached at 5 T), where a linear volume magnetostriction cannot be ruled out.

Giant magnetoresistance in heterogeneous Cu-Co alloys.

Giant magnetoresistance in heterogeneous thin film Cu-Co alloys consisting of ultrafine Co-rich precipitate particles in a Cu-rich matrix is observed, modeled by including spin-dependent scattering at the interfaces between the particles and the matrix, as well as the spin- dependent scattering in the Co- rich particles.

The metastable alloy is seen to evolve from a spin glass at low Co concentrations to a reentrant spin glass with evidence for both ferromagnetic and spin-glass ordering, and finally to a ferromagnet for xg0.40.
